30 minutes? Seriously... there's great terrain right off the road in Emerald Bay. Dick's peak was a little deeper, but there's plenty of people who do it in a day. You're into the "playground" zone just a few miles in. And of course... there's Tallac.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
