We returned to Taipei Train Station from our weekend hike to the summit of Jade Mountain this morning at 12:30 a.m. Physically, I feel fine sitting, and I feel fine standing. It's the in between part that's painful. Eeow! My quads and my calves are very sore. Mentally, I am so proud of myself and the other women in our party: Patty and Flora. We all pushed ourselves mentally to overcome fears and Bodies Acting Out Of Whack to reach the peak of the highest mountain in Northeast Asia (3,952 meters). Oh, and I'm mighty appreciative of the guys, Benson and James, who helped with the footwork and the equipment.

More details will be forthcoming, as well as pictures (including a "I'm the queen of the world!" pose a la Kate Winslet in Titanic and a it's-way-too-cold-let's-hurry-up-with-the-obligatory-photo pose).
