Hike, hike, hike [May. 22nd, 2005|07:37 pm]
[Current Mood |soresore]

agentmiss, kit_ping's sister, is down here visiting for a week. Today, along with 3catsjackson, we decided to do a little hiking.

I should mention that we've been trying to do some longer hikes recently. Today, we really pushed it. It was an 8 mile hike.

That, by itself, doesn't sound too bad. But this was up in the Oakland hills, where it can be both steep and hot. We went up a peak on a trail that hit, in places, a 45-degree slope. (Inevitably the patches with no shade cover.)

So, for us, that's a challenging hike. I certainly think it's respectable, on the hike difficulty scale. I was feeling good until the times I also noticed joggers passing us on the same trail...

P.S. On the subject of the IMPS Star Wars film, they evidently switched to a bittorrent for downloading. There's also productions stills, including one with me (I'm the last officer on the right). And I am officially in the credits, which was kind of them, given my very limited screen time. :)

Go over to Creepygoddess and read the Rain commentary. Now that dinner is over I've got to get back to the sleeves.

Cool, hiking is great, especially this time of year. At least you didn't have any mountain bikers try to run you over, those guys can make a nice hike into an unsettling one. :D

Oh, yes, we did have a few of those, too. Mostly coming down the extremely steep bits we were trudging up. They were generally the friendly sort that day, though, so it was cool.
