#tbt On an #overcast, #windswept day exactly 4 years ago to the day, I decided to #hike one of the toughest #trails I’d found up to this point, the #Dunderberg Mnt trail just south of #Bear Mtn. There’s only 2 buses departing from Bear Mtn so I had to really hustle to complete this 5-mile loop. About halfway through, I noticed that the #Hudson was on a side it wasn’t supposed to be. So I #backtracked and realized that I took a turn I shouldn’t have and was utterly, hopelessly #lost. By this time, I’d already missed one of the departing busses and was guaranteed to miss the next and last one. Sh!t, I was sleeping on the #mountain. I decided to backtrack #downhill and came across the 9W highway, but with only 10 minutes left before the last bus departed, I had no idea what to do. Miraculously, another hiker turned up at the same spot as me after walking his dog. After I explained to him my dilemma, his dog and him gladly drove me up to the bus stop about 3 miles away and I caught my bus! I’m still grateful. So, how’d I get so lost?! You’ll just have to get #outerthere with me so I can tell you… In the meantime, love the #hikers in your life, they are awesome people.
