Comments
Comments: Decided this would be a good day to take Mrs. Slowshoes out for her first bout of exercise in two and a half years. She did well and enjoyed the blue skies and pleasant temps. We were however, trying to break the SKT (slowest known time) for this loop. After an hours of breaks, we reached the Lafayette summit 4 hr and 20 mins into our trek, only to be caught Greg Yeah!, who started 3 hours after we did. After exchanging jabs and insults for 10 minutes, he was off like a blur to Lincoln, on his way to a sub 3 and a half hour loop time. The Mrs. and I slowly made our way across the ridge soaking in the views and blooming diapensia mats. Falling Waters descent was a bit rugged for a non-hiker, but the Mrs. marveled at eighty foot cloudland falls in full flow before setting an unconfirmed SKT of 9hrs 50 mins. Great day out.
