Went on a nine mile day hike yesterday. Started in the parking lot below Rock Canyon (elevation - about 5110 ft) and ended about 4.52 miles up the canyon, past the campground and near the Cascade Saddle. We (my roommate Jared was with me) ended our ascent due to lack of water and a setting sun just below the crest of the cascade mountain's saddle. We were about 8799 feet above sea level. For those of you who are praying for Olympic snow, pray harder... It's almost December and not an inch of snow up there.

Not a bad little hike for a 30 year old fat kid, eh? If I had tried it last week I would have been left on the mountain to die. I weighted 244 this morning. That's eight pounds in eight days. I'm going to take it easy today. Might go up to Aspen Grove and hike to Stewart's (Stewards? Steward? something like that) Falls. Nice and easy.
