Daily Goal

Friday's Goal was to climb a mountain. Oh boy, I sure did it! I decided to hike Grandeur Peak when I was challenged by Mary on her blog to do 60 minutes of cardio.

Trail Stats:

Distance to Grandeur Peak- 3 miles
Elevation Gain- 2619 feet to 8299 feet at summit
Hiking Time- 3 hours

Waterfalls along the trail

Pics of the trail

SO steep! My legs burn just thinking about it!

Pretty Flowers

Views from the trail

I played a pretty good game of leap frog with these girls.
We just kept passing each other!

Almost there!

Views from the top. You can see all the way out to the Great Salt Lake!

Heart Pounding
Chest Heaving
Thighs Burning
Emotions Soaring

This trail was pretty steep and the last half mile was killer! I've attempted to do this hike twice before and never made it to the top. Two years ago I was too out of shape and had to turn around. Last year but couldn't finish it because there was too much snow. I'm thrilled that I finally made it to the top!

Today's (Saturday's) Goal: Just enjoy a nice Saturday at home with my husband!
