No. Not like Colorado Rocky Mountain “high”, but a few feet above ground level 🙂 On Sunday, I went with a group on a hike in Crowder’s Mountain State Park. I’d been there a few times before. It was a great day to be out and about, walking through the woods and up the mountain.
There were 10 of us, 8 women, 2 men. According to what I could find online, the elevation change from the visitor’s center to the top of the mountain, along the trail, is about 830 feet. My Fitbit, which measures altitude changes, considers one floor, about 10 feet. It registered 88 floors when we made it to the top, and 91 when we made it to the tippy, tippy top – the highest that you can go on that particular trail. After that, you can only go down via the “express” route, which almost guarantees death, or back down the trail. I chose the trail. Also, I’d “forgotten” my mountain climbing gear. 😀
Everyone made it to the top. After all was said and done, we took an informal poll asking how many would do it again. A few of the women said: Nope! I can cross this off of my list. I won’t do it again. LOL
I probably won’t go again until cooler temperatures, in the fall. I enjoyed it and, since I’ve increased my walking, have been visiting the Y, and have dropped a bit of weight, it wasn’t so strenuous as the last time that I went, about a year ago. I had fun!
Later, when I got home, I saw that I had cleared 91 floors. I had a thought before going to sleep: Dang! I should have done 9 more flights for an even 100. Now, in order to get 100, I’ll have to do 100 more. Booo! 🙂
