    First backpacking trip. Did it solo with all the newbie mistakes and paranoia. Made it to Duck Lake and it was a tough climb up the pass. Ended up feeling the altitude and couldn’t eat and turned back. Hiked all the way back to the car, beat. Rented a hotel for the night and enjoyed a hot epsom bath and dominos pizza. Felt like a failure until I reflected on how much I actually learned. Next trip was much easier, efficient and amazing. Go hike Duck Lake!
