Sooo, I didn't do the US Bank Tower challenge on Friday... I didn't think I was ready for 75 flights straight up (even though I did 105 flights on the Evil Escalator on Tuesday -- not the same thing...)
A friend of mine told me about this fairly new walking trail with a staircase. I looked it up, and the pictures looked insane... concrete steps built into a mountain... no hand rail... crazy, right??? Of course, that meant I needed to go check it out. I went this morning, and it was indeed insane. It's not normal stair climbing... the stairs are tall. Some are over a foot high, and spaced out all different ways. It felt like climbing bleacher benches... but way worse. LOL.
There is also a trail that zig-zags up the mountain. I climbed up the stairs, and I walked down the trail. The stairs are much to crazy to climb down. Four times on my first visit to the place, so I was very content. Thankfully, it was nice and overcast Sunday morning as I started to climb. The sun came out during my third time up.
This is a view from near the top... I affectionately named it "The Beast!"
I'm going to go stretch some more... hopefully I'm able to walk tomorrow....
