I've never been much of an outdoors person. That changed with my recent infusion into the Little Rock hiking scene.
Together with my girlfriend, who could
seemingly climb the north face of the Eiger without breaking a sweat, we've probably skipped our way to the top of
the rocky trail half-a-dozen times. It's an understatement to say this trail is rocky.
Finally, after a little over an hour in the [heat, rain, fog], we made it to the summit. As I've dove deeper and deeper
into programming and virtual problem-solving I've found various senses of accomplishment, but none really compete
with finishing a challenging physical, well, challenge. It's completely worth the effort.
NOTE If you're planning on a nice hike up the rocks, you could join one of the many who bring their dogs. Be prepared to carry your dog back down though. They apparently have a much easier time with up than down.
