Today's walk and a progress report
Saturday, May 29, 2010      8 comments

My regular walking buddy was off hiking Mount Chauve with her son today, which is still way above my current abilities. (Notice the word "current" in that statement!) So I joined my niece as she walked her dogs this morning. Progress report... Read more

When my sister lived in Fitch Bay, her house was at the foot of a mountain. For years, every morning (weather permitting), she would get up at 5 am in order to hike "her" mountain, (around 8 km), and get back in time to prepare breakfast and hom... Read more

Today, my sister and I walked along a pleasant trail called Fer-de-Lance (Spearhead) at the foot of Mount Orford. It was only 2,5 km, with a degree of difficulty "easy". The path led to a superb panoramic view. I loved it! But my sister (a.k.a. ... Read more

My sister and I met a friend for our walk today. She showed us a new path we'd never been on in the Orford area. It was a delightful walk on a beautiful sunny day. Much easier than those mountains my sister had me climbing the last couple days! ... Read more

Today was a beautiful Spring day, ideal for a long walk in the woods. My sister and I headed for Mount Belleview, a small mountain (or large hill) we'd never climbed before. It's only 380 meters (1247 feet) high, but we got quite a workout as we... Read more

We got lost!
Saturday, May 01, 2010      3 comments

One of my goals was to start hiking again. I had NOT planned for a 14 km hike today! When I realized that we had taken the wrong trail (because we were so busy yapping away rather than paying attention!), I panicked. We didn't even know if we we... Read more
