Hikers - 2000 Calorie Challenge
Ok so I am going a big hike this weekend. Hoping to eclipse 2000 calories burned! I dare you to do the same!



I am hiking North Dome in Yosemite Valley. Not as hardcore as Yosemite falls or Half-Dome, but still a 9 mile round trip, and 800ft elevation change (this starts at 8k feet anyways), with a chance of:

A) Plummeting to my death (or learning how to fly very quickly)

B) Getting eaten by a bear (or becoming the Bear Whisperer)

or

C) Having a great time

I am taking all my camera gear too, so will post some pro pics.

Here are OTHER peoples pics from North Dome (this is one of the best spots to see everything in Yosemite)

Well here are my results and some pics!


9.7 miles total.
3245 calories burned
5 hours 15 minutes of very strenuous hiking. I was literally in over my head here, as the altitude was 8300 feet. Had to keep moving though.
