And so Simon dropped me off at Cathy and Nancy’s place and we hiked up Pulpit Rock, the local version of the Grouse Grind, and beyond. From there we headed to the flagpole and then on to the CBC Tower that tops the mountain. We got pretty darned close but Cathy called it (can’t fault her on this one) after the trail began bushwhacking through head-high thimbleberry bushes mixed with various prickly things.
So we turned back, had lunch in the hot (yummy!) sun at the flagpole and then hiked back down.
In less than two hours Simon and I will be sitting across from a realtor drawing up an offer to buy the acreage at Silverton.
Yes, we are out of our minds.
