Early morning fog and one of the more boring hikes ever (I was making Dante’s circles of hell jokes, among others) lead to one of the best views.
There’s one last Japan post to happen, but before that… The Great Schlep from The Great Schlep on Vimeo. The Great Schlep.
This temple was the steepest ever. Seriously. It was followed by a hike that I, with my knee, could not make.
Where distance is a lie and sports games involve football uniforms and paper airplanes.
Where I cannot explain death until you too have died.
The hike up to Temple 12 was an all-day event. Long, tiring, and totally worth it. It really did take us most of the day, and of course, it was the absolute hottest day. This was the day that I wrenched my knee and wanted to kill someone.
