Sunday 19th April 2015….. a walk in the park…NOT!!!!!

So I was down town at the gas station by 8am where the hiking group meets and Pierre was there and because we have a reputation of doing long and hard hikes no one else wanted to come with us so we set off to go up the mountain…we were heading for the ridge we often go to but by a different route..

It took us just over three and a half hours to get to the summit and it was a tough climb…we enjoyed lunch and some of us were doing this!!!!

It was a fabulous hike we saw no one and it was serene and beautiful..we were gone nearly 7 hours and we reckon we did about 13 miles and got to 9200 feet sounds high and it is but remember that San Miguel is at 6200 feet.

Stopped at the grocery store and came home and straight into a wonderful Epsom salts bath, then dinner and then watched a great soccer game from England and followed that with another win for my Flames over the Canucks in hockey
