The Happy & The Crappy: VI

Stupid Mt. Baldy! lol. We attempted to summit Mt. Baldy again yesterday and failed. This time around (#2 if your keeping score) it was water that did us in. 3/4 of the way up with “no delays” (i.e. no wrong turns, no snakes) even though we could SEE the summit-we were going to be lucky to have enough water to get down if we turned back right then. She (my BFF) ran out of water at the back at the trail head and I ran out in the parking lot. Which amuses me to no end because we had exactly enough water to get us safely down from the spot at which we threw in the towel. Not incidentally we passed a couple of people who were completely out of water and at least one well prepared hiker that had given much of his water away to help folks that were out along the way. That’s not an excuse, that’s the reality.  Baldy handed us our asses AGAIN. It’s cool though…we have a new plan! Round three is on the horizon.
