Enjoying the Crags

After last week's long and tiresome events we decided to join Deann's brother and his wife on a leisurely hike at the Crags, located just south of Divide, Colorado. We had a great time walking and talking and enjoying the beautiful scenery.

The 3 mile hike took us to the top of the mountain where you could see for miles and miles. We sat on the rocks, ate our PB&J sandwiches, granola bars and apples and then retuned down the hill.

Two questions for you:

  1. Why can you travel twice as fast with half the energy when walking down hill? I understand gravity and all, but shouldn't you still be aerobically working to move your body that fast???
  2. Why has no one invented a way to keep penut butter and jelly sandwiches from getting mashed when you pack them in a back pack?
