I made it to the summit of South Sister. I'm still not sure how I feel about my first semi-mountaineering experience. It was a 13-hour day, and with suffering mild altitude sickness, stabbing pains in my kneecaps, dealing with steep, steep terrain, and a blister the size of a quarter on my foot, I wasn't super happy throughout the hike. In fact, most of the time I was miserable. But I feel accomplished. I think I pushed my body a little too far today, and I'll be sore for the rest of the week, but it's another adventure in the books. Thank you @tracy.broomell.3 for experiencing this awful, wonderful day with me.
