What a great day for a ridge walk, and in the foothills of the Highwood no less. A chinook arch, a huge wall cloud with threatening rain, snow and wind. Great company questing through the lush green forest, in winter? Oh yes, what a strange year it has been.
Enjoy this one, navigation skills are a must, experienced hikers only as the game trails multiply and dissolve by the handful. The ridge has a touch of scrabbling at the top and undulates like a psytrance baseline from north to south. With the great divide watching from a distance. And its windy as hell.
The Coyote Hills in the distance as we ascend through a meadow.
