What to do?

P1030635So there’s our group from last night – except for me, of course. Someone had to take the photo! As it turns out, we hiked straight up into a cloud. Views? Not so much – unless you count views of raindrops lit up by our headlights.

Still, it was fun. How could it not be fun to hike? This was my first experience of leading a hike at night and, let me tell you, it’s a different thing entirely from leading during the day. First, you have to do the juggling act between shining your beam on the ground you are about to step on and ahead so you can determine where the trail goes.

Happily, I got us there and back and only had one “HUH!?” moment.

My other huh moments have come and gone during the day. Julie wants to hike this weekend – so do Del and Stella and it seems to be up to me to determine where that will be. And, as I try to decided, I am considering the weather, because that’s going to play a big role. If I had my druthers, I would be heading into Strathcona with snowshoes – but given the warm temperatures and rain in the forecast, I doubt that will happen. I also want to know if Paul has any exciting plans – for some reason his are usually so much more interesting than mine. So I will wait and see until tomorrow – at that point I will have to start letting people know what’s up.

And then there’s Julie’s decision on Switzerland. If she decides not to go this year, I shall have to formulate new plans for the summer. And what will they be? There’s the big question.

My short and medium term hiking goals are up in the air.

and la di da to that.
