Hunting for bearhugs

(09/13/21 4:00am)

I’m trudging through a hike this summer, ankles coated in dust and nose in 100 SPF sunscreen (yes, unfortunately I do actually wear this), trying to ward off the roasting sun. As the trail turns to the right and I’m rounding the bend, I see the path open up to an area where a small huddle of people are waiting to ascend. There’s a long ladder lying along the steep hill to take us to the next portion of the hike, but with each hiker, it’s started to slip further off the hill.
