our view as we crossed Highway 40 to the trail head on the other side
Outward Bound and I believe this link would be the group and the event. We then carried on and began our up and down meander along Mist. Enjoying the beauty and the peacefulness, right out of the blue from the ridge in front of us, along came this plane so close I felt like I could reach out and touch it. The pilot tilted back and forth acknowledging us with a wave. I was able to quickly snap this shot after he passed us. Talk about exciting and creating an adrenaline rush!

my destination shot along Mist Ridge
a dip along the way and opening up a view of forever
You can see the whole line of peaks we still have to reach.
my fun friends & me
We thoroughly enjoyed the scenery,
being buzzed by the plane,
and on top of that
we got to watch a cavalcade ride by.
The entire stretch of the Ridge was covered in rocks & boulders & slabs of all sorts.
I would suggest this Ridge to be a geologists dream.
stopping for a short rest along the way
coming down the grassy slope towards Rickarts Pass
We arrived at Rickerts Pass. We took a second lunch break here to admire the scenery, rest a bit and fuel up for the last eight kilometers back to the trail head. Getting through this distance to come would be back to putting our heads down and getting that business done.
a few short minutes before arriving to where we would be calling it a day
This day will be a memorable one for me.
I would not have asked for it to play out any differently than it did.
Mentally & physically I felt like I was "on top of the world"!
What stunning vistas. Definitely on top of the world feelings, even from my chair.ReplyDelete
