Saturday, Nick, John, Brian, and I made the trek up Mt. Olympus, a popular hiking destination for Salt Lakers. John and Brian are pretty regular hikers, and had no problems. Nick and I lagged behind a bit, and thought several times about turning back.
The ascent took three hours, while the descent took about two. It was probably the most difficult hike I've done since Mt. Fuji, but I really enjoyed it. And I'm not nearly as sore today as I thought I'd be. If you'd like to check out the entire photo stream, go here. And yeah, give another round of applause to God.
