A spectrum of experience

Posted on

Stepping out of my house this morning, the first thing I noticed was that it was the perfect work out weather.  I hoped the plan I had in store would complement the morning.  With three coupons packed up, I made my way to Devil’s Ridge.  When I got there at 0520, there were only a […]

Climb Every Mountain

Busted…like our brackets
