Rode Larch Mountain today - a popular Portland, Oregon area climb. Weather was fantastic and cars were non-existant - it was so quiet out I could hear the bees and flys buzzing by me. It was my first time up and it was a pretty good climb - 4100' in 22.8 miles and a long descent back down. Got home and made myself an awesome sandwich with all the trimmings (rotisserie chicken, avocado, tomatoes, etc) and a big Vortex IPA in a frosty cold glass. Good times. Would have only been better with some friends.

And the best part - the meal!
