Back to my favorite nearly private lake. I've been trying to walk 10K a day everyday. I don't know if that is a realistic goal, but so far so good. Last year I lost ten pounds while training for Mount Adams, this year I gained 7 of those pounds back and to my horror they landed on my belly.
Turns out it's a change of life thing. Anyway I have a new goal to lose ten pound this year as well. I want to get this done by my 50th birthday. Luckily that means I only have to lose one pound a week.
Walking on a level surface burns 100 calories per hour. Walking ten K or 6.3 miles per day burns 600 calories. I think the scale is starting to move, but not sure.
The road to this hike is in terrible shape due to logging. Logging really tears up dirt roads. I took a different road out. The drive out was longer, but it was probabably faster and for sure easier on my car.
I spend about two hours at the Lake with Sage, just relaxing and taking pictures and checking facebook from time to time. I cuaght two pokemon on this hike, that was all that spawned.
8.5 miles 300 feet elevation gain on the winter route.
