Tiger Mountain. We chose this particular course because it was supposed to be easier. Well it was shorter than Mt. Si. The first part of the hike was a little disapointing. I was walking without much of an idea of what our destination was. I was following the moutain goat, I mean Shawn, and playing around with one of my gadgets (of course!). By the time we locted the trail for the summit, we had hiked maybe 2 miles, and the trail started to pick up some incline. Not bad, pack loaded with 35 lbs, and new boots. The trail got steeper, and steeper.
