Time to hike to our camp site off the west rim trail. Another 5 miles and part of it is the treacherous Angels landing trail in the scorching heat! Hey, can't stop now. Sounds like a blasty blast! Not! But I love it. It's all about the journey. This is why I do it. Along with it, comes peace, tranquility, solitude and my favorite, freedom. After a 2 mile hike to Scouts Overlook. We took a left to continue onto the west rim trail to our campsite which is a other 3 more miles of ascent. For a guy that works out 6 days a week, this is no walk in the park. I'm exhausted, soaked in sweat as I type this part resting under a tree waiting for my 3 hiking companions. Almost 6 hours later we finally made it to the top and I'm cramping so bad. I look at my calves and it looks like a bad chemistry experience going on in my legs. It's crazy looking. I have to say my view from my hammock is fucking awesome. 6500+ ft with an incredible Canyon views. I'm ready for an ice cold beverage and a steak dinner but unfortunately I get to live off of rationed water and snacks from the store until tomorrow morning. I got my photos, my friends,and this view. It was crazy how we encountered deer. They would come up within 10 feet from us. Finally the sun set and the stars came out. Wow what a sight to see! I going on break! Murica!
