Last week I went up to Cuevas on Thursday. There's a bus I take which goes by my house in La Guardia around 1 PM. It's really quite civilized a way to get up there. I think that the cost of the round trip is actually less than the cost of driving (one person at any rate).
During the bus ride, I listened to some very interesting interviews I downloaded from Ultra Runner Podcast. An interview with Hal Koerner, a very long one with nutritionist Sunny Blende, another with Goeff Roes - cool resource for sure...
Whatever the case, I got up to the cabins around 3pm. Wilma and I dealt with some money issues, and then I went "running". I think I got out around 4:30.
I've been having trouble staying motivated recently (see my last two posts), so this time I plugged myself into the tunes and that really helped.
The trail to the third waterfall has a bit of climbing, but the real hills hit after the third waterfall.
I wandered around above this place a bit trying to find a way around a section I feel is too dangerous to traverse alone up high, but eventually ended up summiting two peaks I always tag when I decide to go off road. Between the two peaks there's a saddle where I shot some video...
Anyway, thanks for reading, send some positive thoughts to my home state of VT, and now I've got to go chase my son.
