Ok. That’s how it freaking felt. Day 2 was by far the hardest day on
the trek. We woke up nice and early to hit the road with the crew.
We were warned it was going to be rough. Yeah. That was an
I thought I was tough. But this was the beginning of the day.
I wasn’t this tough the whole day.
It was cool jungle for part of the trip which was good
because the sun was burning my skin. The sun was so
strong that my ears blistered. Hot look I know.
The views were crazy, beautiful. We started from the bottom
of those mountains and slowly moved to the top. See those
people there.. the ones hiking. Yeah. We all wanted to die.
We were in this together!
Here is Maggie taking a break. She was so close! I was waiting for
her at the top of Dead Women’s Pass. This highest point on the trek.
12,916 feet. Yeah. No joke. Now add that with the altitude we
were at. It was crazy high. But once we got here… it was all
down hill. Literally. At least for the rest of the day.
We felt untouchable. We started all the way at the bottom. Can you see
it? We had a reason to feel good. It took a few hours to get to get to
this amazing point. And then it was time to head down the other
side and get lunch! Just get to camp in general.
We headed down this path. I basically ran down this mountain.
I was exhausted that the worst part was over. I wanted
to get to the camp. Badly.
Here is why. This was the view from our campsite. It was insane.
Plus there was fresh water running from the mountains. I
proceeded to put my feet under said glacial water. It felt so
good. Mountain foot soak.
It was amazing. We were able to relax for the rest of the day. It
included a nap for me. Once we woke up from the naps, we
played cards and then had dinner. After our insane day of
intense hiking, it was easy to fall asleep early. Day 3 was going
to be a walk in the park compared to day 2.
