Ah yes – I am high on my favourite drug: alpine hiking!
Simon and his friend, Jean, and I headed up Kuskanax today under super hiking conditions – cool enough and cloudy enough on the way up that it didn’t slow us down but also with clear skies for the views and lots of sun, especially on the way down. We were still in time to have meadows full of glacier lilies at the top. It was, quite simply, a perfect hiking day.
I am just plain thrilled and gratified that my darling loved it too. I adore hiking with him – more than anything.
It’s the simple things, closely tied to nature.
And of course, the drug of the alpine.
