Well … maybe "a walk in the park" is not the best way to describe it. Perhaps a grueling, elevation-changing, humid, snake-sighting, flash-flooding trek would be a better way to characterize these thirty miles. I should also mention we jumped on the trail starting at 3:30 a.m. wearing headlamps and were required to finish the miles within 12 to 15 hours.
