The more KMC hikes I do, the more I believe that the members are some of the nicest people I have ever met. Take Abby Wilson, our trip leader today. Sheesh! She’s the finest, kindest, most patient, caring and just plain lovely woman – as a trip leader, I don’t compare. Quite frankly, I suck in comparison. But I don’t care one bit. I just like to admire her.
So we hit the trail, went up to a truly fine viewpoint overlooking Nelson, and came back by a different route. Loop trail! The best. It was an easy hike and it surprises me that something so gentle can actually give you 600 metres elevation gain.
The viewpoint was our lunch spot – as fine a one as you could ask for during shoulder season.
