Mount Esja

Here are some photos from our hike of Mount Esja, a famous volcanic mountain range just 15 or so minutes from where we live. The hours we spent scaling the slopes were well worth the scenic beauty and spectacular views from the summit!

Just the beginning – oh boy

Already a little sore from our morning workout – stupid power cleans (sorry Rose)

The water is so clean you can drink straight from the stream – soooo cool

The best bottle of water we’ve ever tasted!

Up we go – our calves are really starting to burn now

So close…

We reached the summit – finally : )

Signed the guest book – excuse my kindergarten handwriting

Lesson of the day – “There are no shortcuts to any place worth going”.
