Here is a bit of background information on my Catalina Trip. I went with a Hiking group and fell in love immediately. As you watch the video, you will see why. A hike is just a hike without some fun. That said, I do enjoy quite time with nature as well.
Most of us camped so it was surprisingly inexpensive. First night my sleeping bag disappeared, brrrr. Half our Hikers disappeared after that to a Hotel. The rest of us toughed it out. I am very grateful to the organizer who is also a great hiker to model after.
Illia organized, Barbara is sweet enough to like instantly and Kaz is the life of the party.
First full day was a long tough hike. I was hurting from head to toe but then the freezing cold weather numbed me up!
Two gentlemen who impressed me with great manners and humor as well.
Second day was another long tough hike that most of the group bailed on. I started the hike and in just a few minutes, I bailed. It was a bit strange really so I apologized later for the oddness of it all.
I was so happy to see my buddies had not yet departed for the 5 mile hike.
We took our time, laughed a bit too much and took plenty of detours.
