We sort of mapped out our stopping/lowering heart rate points and went for it. We made it to the top in about two hours? and it was worth it once again! Such an amazing view! And we got to catch up since we rarely get to see each other!
It's a serious workout but we had fun doing it!

After our 4.5 mile hike back down, we drove down the hill into the town of Manitou Springs and grabbed a snack and a beer in the outdoor patio at a little bar called Townhouse.
Collin was done working by the time we were finishing our drinks so we headed home, showered up, and went to Colorado Mountain Brewery for dinner.
As always, we laughed and had a great time together until we were just too tired to stay awake any longer. The next morning Collin had to work and Michelle had to meet her students in Boulder so we all woke up early and said our goodbyes. I'm hoping it won't be too long before I get to see her again!
