I set out to do this hike as a quick little cardio exercise. I got a VERY early start as I was a afraid the heat would get the best of me. I took the ski hut trail side of the loop first and once I got to the top, I realized there was an event happening that same day. I quickly learned that over 2000 participants would be heading up the same direction I would be heading down. The thought of passing Devils Backbone while also trying to scootch around humans sounded terrifying, so I ran pretty much the entire way down. I passed a number of awesome people. They were all participating in the Wounded Warriors fundraiser. Now that I know it exists, I plan to participate next year. <3
