    This was a fairly strenuous hike, but we had a great time. got to test out my mosquito repellent and it held up against the deet, but I think I will still make it a bit stronger as neither the deet nor my homemade stuff worked 100% against those little buggers. :)

    Great way to spend the 4th! This hike is a little harder than loch leven about the same as feather falls. But they have coin op showers when we get back to Jay camp and Pizza in a small town on the drive out!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
