I went hiking with Shashank today. We climbed Mount Monadnock at a breakneck pace. I was impressed with our pace, since I hadn't ever really been hiking and it was his first time of the season. The weather was nice and cool for our ascent, but started pouring during our descent, making it really hard to get good footing on the rock faces.
I can't wait to try out some more difficult trails in another few weeks. I've posted pictures on my gallery.
