Weekly Photo Challenge: On The Way To Klahhane Ridge

“In-between moments can be just as memorable as grand finales. This week, share a photo you took on the way to something else.” – Michelle W. The Daily Post

On The Way

Last August John, Ryan and I spent four days exploring The Olympic National Park and even though I was recovering from a summer cold we thought a hike along Klahhane Ridge would be a great way to celebrate our 20th anniversary.  I really felt the effects of being sick but we kept moving and by the end of the day my Fitbit logged over 11 miles and the equivalent of 264 flights of stairs!  The final 1.4 miles and 1400 foot elevation gain was a killer but I’m happy to report we made it to the day hiker turnaround in plenty of time for a picnic lunch and a big bag of Peanut M&M’s.

This photo is from one of many rest points along the way and posted as part of the Weekly Photo Challenge.
