10:25 a.m.: I still have hope. I post on Instagram, “I’m so close to the summit, I can taste it.” Four minutes later, I decide to start counting switchbacks to keep my mind off of what this experience feels like in my body.
When I gave my name, the wrong one was printed onto the cup. I became Grace for the day, and immediately the whole thing turned around.
The Hollywood sign, Griffith Observatory, downtown Los Angeles and the beach. How to best see it all (and comfortably) from a Runyon Canyon hike.
