2018: Your stats

As we close out another year on the trail, it's time to reflect on the year that has passed.
How many miles did you hike? How much elevation gain? and what was your favorite hike of the past year?

For me, I logged 859 miles and a mere 23,166 feet of gain. It was a mellow year for me. My favorite 5 hikes were all in Glacier National Park with Garden Wall edging out the others once again (gotta love the views, flowers and animals).

I did manage a couple of first-time locations (who'd of guessed after 29,824 miles and over 3 million feet of elevation gain there's be routes left to be explored). Yes, I did finally stumble over the 3M feet mark and look forward to reaching 30K in 2019.

Wow, 55 logged hikes this year. Like last year, I'm surprised I got in that many.
Miles? Elevation gain? I'd have a hard enough time reporting what I did just today!
I'll remember 2018 as my St Helens summer.
I've done just about every conceivable rim route. However, I do have at least one more I'm interested in, plus a wacky stunt planned for 2019. ;)

I'm delighted that I got out as much as I did in 2018. I would have gladly done much more, but given the challenges of the past year, these stats feel like a victory over difficult circumstances. :)

27 days of hiking on wild trails, for 200 miles and 48,000 ft. elevation gain.
30 walks on the Oregon beaches, for 140 miles and zero elevation gain.
230 walks on the trails in in my local natural area, for ~500 miles and 50,000 ft. elevation gain.
60 walks on city streets in my neighborhood, for ~135 miles.

Being out almost every day for a walk under the sky, usually in nature, helped keep me balanced, sane, fit and healthy.
