Wesley Ridge


Well now, that was an interesting hike. And, of course, it was a great day because I was outside.

The first thing I did when I came back was check online descriptions of the hike – to see if and where I went wrong. I did well. All I did, that I “should” not have, is turn back before I got to Mount Wesley. I was convinced that I had gone wrong somehow. As it turns out, I didnt’. You do, in fact, Have to hike for more than an hour along an old and very ugly logging road. Now. I know. At the point where I turned back, after more that three hours of hiking, the trail just didn’t look right.

But that’s good. Next week, when we do the traverse with two vehicles, I’ll be clear about the trail. The weather was not camera worthy, so very few photos. But here’s the good news: it did not rain and, once again, I wa able to sit while I had my lunch. There were several very good views on the trail.

As always, the trail marking was pitiful. It was pretty much a matter of exploring and seeing where different trails led. Thanks goodness I have good trail instincts. (except for the point of turning around. The trail was so poor at that point, I was pretty convinced I had done something wrong.)

I’m eager now to do the full traverse next Saturday. And I’m really hoping for a sunny day for a change.

Still, I loved it and Abby is a happy and sleeping dog.P1010490 P1010491 P1010492 P1010494 P1010495
