No GPS or photos today, strictly a conditioning hike.
The plan was to meet Ken at the Cable Line trail head at 11:30. I got there about 10, planning to walk west to find where the High Point/Cable Line trail head area intersects the Puget Power trail. And get a couple of fun and easy extra miles in.
My phone rang about 10:30 – Ken said he was going to be early so I turned around and hiked back. We headed up the Cable Line at 11, with Ken in the lead.
In fact, I made it to within about 10 minutes of the summit when I met Ken coming down. He did the trail in 56 minutes, a great time. I had been chugging along for 1:20 so I would have done it in 1:30.
One of my goals for next year is to get in better shape and hit the summit of West Tiger via the Cable Line in less than an hour.
I will use this post to track my progress.
