Video: Y Mountain Hike

Scott and I hit Y mountain today. I rolled out of bed, ate a bowl of Fruity Pebbles and we were off! We were surprised to find the back side of the mountain covered with about a foot of snow even this late in the year. It made for some difficulty on the final climb up the back side of the mountain, but provided some fun coming back down. Here's our video from the top. Notice my lovely bead-head hair. :)

The hike up took about 2:15:00 and the hike down took about 1:30:00 for a total of 3 hours and 45 minutes. It's a pretty rough hike, as most of the trail runs steep, but we were able to keep a moderate pace. By the time we reached the cars, our quads were shaking and weak. Sunburns were kept to a minimum, except for Scott's neck, which looks like a large red vine.

All in all, a successful adventure!



  1. Hope you and Scott didn't make-out up there. It's such a romantic setting. :)

  2. I'm itchin' for a good hike! Guess it's a good thing I'm moving to the mountains soon. :)
