Mountain Memberships are Free

There’s a trail you can see from the highway that shoots right up a wide-open ridge line and tops out at Grandeur Peak; a smallish mtn on the side of SLC.  You think, “Looks kinda fun; easy even.”  I tried running it the other day and absolutely got my ass handed to me.  A week later, I took Greg.  We walked.  Plodded.  Heart rates still soared. Got passed by some dude who shaved his whole body and was like 4% BMI.  Insane.  The fresh morning mountain air was invigorating….the views expansive….and the hike breathtaking (literally).  Oh yeah…and it was free.
