16 mile hike

Monday, September 09, 2013

Yesterday we went on a seven hour, 16 mile hike. I look forward to this every year!
Although the only "wildlife" we saw was a chipmunk, squirrel, and a frog, we did see a moose track and a bear track:

Although there was a chance of thunderstorms (you don't want to be on top of a mountain in a thunderstorm) we had beautiful weather!

    Hey, I saw Bruce today and he and his crew made it to the top at 5pm then missed the storm and down by dark. Love that this is our annual hike!

    Beautiful hike, living in Montana must give you lots of choices.
Where was your hike?

I am a hiker too, I live in British Columbia, Canada, and also have lots of hiking choices.
I just joined a hiking club and have done a lot of new but not too difficult hikes with them this year, I love the 5+ hour hikes, so nice to be outside, walking, breathing fresh air, enjoying magnificent scenery. I am planning to do a 12 mile hike on Wednesday, Yellow Aster Trail in the Mt Baker area.
