If At First You Don't Succeed, Try Again on Monday

Thursday, July 3, 2014

This afternoon, Kjia and I put on our running shoes, filled our backpacks with water bottles, and decided to head over to the Lake Poway/ Mount Woodson Trail.  I've never done it before, and thought it would be a great challenge.  I hear that the hike really kicks your butt, Kjia did it on her birthday last year and said it was definitely nothing to laugh at.

Chalk it up to our summertime laziness, but this hike just did not go as planned.  First mistake was decided to get up at 10:30am and not leaving the house until 11.  By the time we got there it was already 84 degrees outside, and in Poway that might as well by 90.  Kjia had left out the fact that the last time she did the hike she was forced to wake up at 8 in morning by her friends, so by the time it started to get really hot like it was today, they were already on their way down the mountain.  We only last on the trail for about an hour or hour and a half, and Kjia so keenly forgotten to eat breakfast, leaving her nauseous and dizzy with still another hour and half to go.  The view from atop Mount Woodson at Potato Chip Rock is supposed to be really amazing, but we were still able to take in some good sights.  We're gonna try again on Monday, and this time get up bright n' early before the heat catches us.
