Rob and I hiked to the Y in honor of Nie, who reportedly has a habit of running all the way to the top and back down again. I can't say that I even kept a respectable walking pace the whole time, but it was a lovely perambulation just the same. We took our headlamps so we could find our way back down the mountain. I think we'll do it again and take our guitars next time.
A gentle start.
Good advice for life!
The happy hikers.
Japanese girls, out of breath.
Give this wood a sniff—it smells like hard-breathing, sweaty hikers.

Tired feet, big city.

See the temple?
