This photo is taken looking towards my destination of the day: Sulphur Mountain. I was standing on the top of Tunnel Mountain when I took this photo.
Every day I look at Tunnel Mountain and Sulphur Mountain, but I had never run up both of them on the same day! I started by circumnavigating Tunnel and then I ran up it. I was going to do 2 laps and call it a day, but then I saw Sulphur off in the distance and I thought: "Why not?" I ended up walking almost all of Sulphur, but it was a brisk walk. I was moving extra slow today. A wee bit tired, perhaps? Total time on feet: 5 hours Total ascent: I don't wear an altimeter, but around 1200 metres of elevation gain....and then one big giant 900 metre descent back to my home at the base of Sulphur Mountain. It's no small wonder why my quads are bursting out of all of my pants. Tortured myself with a cold water bath afterwards, and a few trips back and forth to the hot tub. Cold. Hot. Cold. Hot. Cold. Brrrrrr. Must finish with cold but never want to. Hot tubs are much more enjoyable than cold tubs!!
