A couple friends from my ward and I went hiking tonight. Hiking here is very different than in Utah. "Mountains" is a relative term, I have come to find out. We hiked Shaw Butte tonight. I think it is about 4 miles round trip. It is pretty steep in some areas, but was really fun. We are going to try to go on a hike every week. I'm excited to explore with them.
I didn't take a camera, so I have nothing to prove that I got to the top. But the view of the city was great from up there. And I made it without feeling like I was going to die. I consider that a major win!
