Hot Gorgeous Hikers (SPA Trip #13)
Welcome to the GRAND FINALE of HIKE WEEK on FamousInternetSkiers.com! Here we go! Hot Gorgeous is not only a clue to this SPA Trip, but is also descriptive of the A-Team that headed out from the FIS World Headquarters on this hike/swim/drink/schuss-recon/driving challenge. Just look at these hot gorgeous hikers getting ready for a hot gorgeous hike!
I am a relatively new traveler to these parts, but as I sat in the backseat of the car opening the window after I heard a raucous laugh from Christian and Greg (which usually signifies an unpleasant odor was heading my way) I looked out the window and always saw this:
WTF!? I choked. Christian laughed demoniacally and nonsensically. In a bit more reserved tone, Greg managed to explain in his teacher tone that make-shift trailers carrying a wide variety of goods (and bads) hitched to inappropriately sized vehicles is normal for these parts. He was a self proclaimed expert ever since he and Sam had gained valuable experience in this wide and mysterious region north of America while on a baffling ski trip two years ago.
After endless miles of roadside mysteries, we finally arrived at our destination.
Just kidding, that isn’t what we came to hike. I don’t even know what that is–as usual. No, once at the trail head, we did what we usually do: hike as fast as possible until we see something cool (either from being in an anaerobic induced coma and having a cool dream, or getting to the top of a mountain). Then we drink beer. I don’t remember much of the ascent. (In fact this entire trip was so fun that I don’t remember half of it for various reasons.) Regardless though, after about 5 clicks (what is that in America-miles?) of speed walking uphill passing people who kept telling me to ‘bonjour’ (i think that is code for ‘stop trying to keep up with those boys, you’re panting like a dog and look like you’re going to pass out’) I in fact did catch up and we stumbled out of the green tunnel to see this
Whoa. I tried to contain my excitement and mask my love of MHL. Christian couldn’t hide it. Is he receiving communion or something?
Safety Greg was burning with joy as he kept an eye on the alpine zone.
And was transfixed with these cliffs
Christian demonstrates that he is a skier in his own mind
