Looking up at the mountain from my place. You can see we went along a path above the tree lined.
I just had one the greatest and most harrowing mountain runs ever and I have no pictures to share. Last night my phone fell out of my bag and landed on the tile flooring in the kitchen and apparently destroyed the lens. Didn’t realise it as the “selfie” side works fine.
Very sad about this. Anyway I went on this crazy adventure with mountain goat neighbor up a mountain that involved a rope at one point as it was so scary steep!
Um yeah, I think you can kind of spot the scary part!!! But I put my big boy shoes on today and wasn’t going to let a little mountain get in the way! 😊 …and yeah that was a lot of climbing overall. I never had a head for heights but Thibault had mentioned this one passage as being spectacular and not to be missed. As he is an experienced climber I felt in security and was confident that I could do this. And I have no pictures! Ugh!
These are the creatures that live where we climbed. The chamois. We could smell them at one point but didn’t spot them.
Some hunters fastened a large salt lick to a great tree at some point for the animals. Again no picture.
So here’s a picture of koko on a very rare down mode!
Almost angelic there. Right now she is busy chasing her tail and alternatively clawing and biting me all over. Because that’s just what you do.
Run: 142 km (88 miles)
Climb: 6,800 m (22,300 feet)
Biked: 275 km (170 miles)
I was hoping for more but as I was out of commission for a couple weeks it’s still pretty darn good.
The weather is sublime again today so that really added to the pleasure of being out.
Happy Friday! Happy trails! 🏔
