    I joke about working at the Mount Whitney Ranger Station and having two blond-haired, incredibly fit hikers show up for a day-hike permit at 3:00 p.m.

    'Most people take about eight hours to reach the summit and about six to come back down again,' I explain.

    They look at each other, then one says, 'Yes, but ve are German.'

    'I understand,' I reply, handing them the permit. 'Have a great hike.'


    The real enemy of the good is not the perfect, but the mediocre.
