another mountain to climb

If you remember from a past post during the summer, I tried to go up Mt. Baldy w/ a few friends but was not able to complete it. This time, I was more careful in selecting people who were in better shape and able to make it to the top =)

The last mile or so. Definitely the hardest part of the hike.
Made it.
The hike took a good 8 hours or so, and we were starving by the time we got down. We quickly decided on whatever was nearest that urbanspoon directed us to and came along this place.
A Japanese fast food joint.
We ordered some hand rolls: spicy tuna, salmon, and tuna.
I got the chicken teriyaki plate that came with the choice of two salads. The first was with some stale dry noodles in a vinegar based dressing with red onions and cucumbers.
The other was some Thai style slaw with some peanut and sesame dressing.
The food wasn't that great, but having had trail mix and granola bars all day, I wasn't about to complain.
Mikuni Japanese Grill
263 Foothill Blvd
La Verne, CA 91750
And then we got Yogurtland for dessert. I think I conked out around 7 or 8 that day.
By the time you read this, I will be flying high in the air. I'm off to Kansas for an interview. Hopin to nail it. It's gonna be freezing!

Good job on the hike! I could have climbed Mt. Baldy with a group but wasn't able to. Love the beautiful views whenever I hike- the view you got certainly looks fantastic!

Good luck on the interview!
