A friend of mine asked me if I wanted to go hiking up near the Three Sisters Mountain area. Specifically, climb the South Sister mountain. Although I have been getting into shape, I knew this would be a real challenge for me.
From the trailhead to the summit is 6 1/4 Miles one way and the summit is an elevation of around 10,400 feet (yes, the air starts to get thin). What the heck, I would give it a go.
