My annual total for 2020 was 28 nights, 216 miles, and 20,500 ft of elevation. Not an overly impressive set of figures, but considering the year’s events, not too bad either. I exceeded my nights out goal of 24 nights, and I missed my mileage goal of 240 miles by just 24 miles. I visited six wildernesses in fifteen trips and completed hiking all of the trails in four of them. My first trip was January 5-7 and my last December 26-29. To do this I drove some 2,116 miles. That’s over 40 hours of driving. No wonder Dance Monkey is stuck in my head.
Despite everything, it’s been a good year. I’ll take that.
