the gardiner's take camelback



on the trail we met a guy who hikes up camelback mountain
4 times a day.
everyday but sunday.

he is intense.

i was going up and he was coming down.
i was coming down and he was going up.
i was still coming down and he passed me.

so i had to stop him before i convinced myself that i was seeing things.

he wears knee braces, gloves, and carries water on his hip

oh, and he is also 75.



really.


music: lasso by phoenix (i know, how appropriate)

I haven't hiked camelback since highschool. Watching your video kinda makes me want to go again! Maybe I can convince my husband to go?? He's kind of a baby. It looked fun though!

Love Phoenix (the band) and now I think I officially love Phoenix (the city) and have to plan a trip out.
