Documenting Days Gone By

information is from what I wrote in a journal
August 7, 2003 - Thursday
12 km round trip
9:30am - 2:00pm
A steady climb the whole way. Wide, tree lined path. Not very scenic but worth it to see Troll Falls and the Lookout. Ate lunch at the Lookout. Not keen to do this one again.
Looking back: These were the years when I was a runner more than I was a hiker. For hiking I cherished wearing the 100% cotton race shirts I received in the race packages from the races I entered. I invested in a real pair of zip off North Face hiking pants. I thought I was the bomb at the time, never again will I go for baggy hiking pants that are covered in big pockets.
