So – it’s the hottest day of the year – which made it a perfectly logical choice to hike 1200 metres up the open south slope of a mountain for almost 4 hours (one way, mind you).
And yes, the reason it took that long was because of the heat.
Did I mention it was hot? At least 40 or more in the sun – and boy – yes, we were in the sun.
We made it. In other words, our accomplishment for today was that we survived. I drank about 5 litres of water, most of it stuffed with electrolytes.
The destination is lovely.
