We cannot read the hiking maps. An easy walk turned into a 5.5 hour moderately difficult hike. Thank goodness we met a couple from the Isle of Skye, equally confused, who shed some light on where we might be.I became extremely quiet and stated an absolute turnaround time but we confirmed our location before we needed to turn around.
The trail numbers are variable, Tim thinks he’s got it now, I remain dubious. But the sights, which cannot be captured by camera, were spectaculor.
We could see our little village of Aniane way off in the distance.
We were even higher than the other day. I was surprised when some mountain bikers rode up the trail.
Some parts of the road were built more than a thousand years ago and were better than any Adirondack trail.
We enjoyed some fresh spring water and a cold beer at the end of the hike and all was well with the world.
