If you aren’t a stair climber, this hike is NOT for you!

Just had to clear that up first. I personally love stairs and absolutely LOVED this hike. It may be my favorite of the 6 peaks I completed but it so hard to pick a favorite favorite since they’re all so unique and different in their own way.

We picked the BEST weather day to hike Ellinor. Sunny but a good breeze and for it being early Oct. we had the weather gods watching out for us.

The middle section of the trail I found the hardest. It’s very rocky and coming down was challenging. But if you ever feel tired or defeated, all you have to do is turn around all look at beautiful Lake Cushman. The views were bountiful and breathtaking.

The stair section towards the top was daunting to stare at. I challenged myself and told my friend I was going to climb that section in full. No stopping, just go. I did it! It was a beast but if you put your mind to something, there ain’t nothing you can’t accomplish!

We had the top to ourselves and had a few photo shoot's with our fruit and our faces.

loved this hike and would do it again and again! Thanks Ellinor for the perfect day!
