September 7 – rugged

☆  rugged  でこぼこの


Rugged is used to describe a place where the land is uneven and covered with rocks, without many trees or plants. I remember climbing Mt. Fuji and the way up was actually OK. Hard word, but OK and I felt like I could do it.

The way back down was crazy! The path was so rugged, with the volcanic rocks, it was hard to grip and I felt like I was going to slide all the way to the bottom! Trying to grip onto such a rugged landscape was really hard work for my legs. All of the pain and muscle aches I felt were from coming down the rugged mountain, not going up! I was pretty surprised that coming down was so difficult!
