I did it!
This past Saturday Hubby, my friend K'leis and I left before 6 AM to conquer the Wellsville Mountains via Deep Canyon. By the time we turned up 300 North in Mendon and got to the trailhead it was barely light (6:25 AM), but we began our climb anyway.
I took it slow, taking many breaks, but finally reached the summit just before 10 AM. What a rush!
I'll save all the details for my write-up in the Herald Journal on Tuesday, September 15th. (Don't worry if you don't get the paper. I'll post it here shortly after the 15th.)
Whew! I did it. And my newspaper writing stint is all but over. Just in time for my new career as a substitute teacher.
