Usually the letter represents the first name of the city it overlooks, but in the L's case it is for Loyola, a local private high school. We also have a giant M (can you guess what the M represents?) on the mountain just to the right of the L. I once told an outta towner that the whole alphabet was on the mountains surrounding the Missoula valley. "See, L and then there's M. Look around and you'll find the rest of the letters." Total lie. We "only" have L and M.
You know what? I will admit I am a bit out of shape, but hiking up a steep mountain with 20 pounds strapped to my back was hard! Like, take my breath away,get me off of this mountain, hard! We made it to the top though, and the view is always worth it.
|Huh, I thought I had a better "view" pic than this...|
I want to thank my dear friend Jen for getting me out, and also for sharing all these awesome pictures she took during our hike! Dangit if we didn't get a picture of the three of us...but I suspect there will be more adventures in our future!
