Hurts so good

Looking down from McRae Peak--it's a LONG way back down!


Do you remember that song "Hurts So Good"?  Come on, I know you do, even if you don't want to admit it.  Well, every now and again, it seems like a good idea to do that to ourselves.  Monday was one of those times.  Emily, Jason, and I decided to take the day off from work and kick start our hiking season (we only have time to do such things in the fall and winter) with a little 10 or so mile hike covering 2000 feet of elevation change.  Yep.  It was indeed one heck of a kick off!  If you see me moving slow tomorrow, you'll know why. Although I'll be hurting for a few days, I have to admit that it feels good too.  It was an absolutely perfect day--so clear we could actually see Charlotte!  It's also always a good idea to kick those muscles back into gear that will be needed next spring (lest they get too fat and lazy!).  Maybe Mr. Mellencamp was right after all.
