... much the scope of the day, got to go, my book is calling me. -- Tali A rather disappointing end to the hike - with the pouring rain and poor visibility up the mountain, it made no sense to attempt today's walk. Instead we took our time in the hotel and had a relaxing breakfast and packed up our backpacks for the last time. ...

The day started out pretty normal with clouds threatening and the odd drop of rain.

After speaking to a local,they convinced us that due to the weather, the Arpette was a bad idea - visibility was poor and there were some areas that could be difficult especially if one did not have good maps and gps. This was the more difficult hike with an elevation gain ...

Looking forward to a good sleep. -- Harriet Today we went up the mountain and then back down. Chaim the cow and the rest of his family started following us when we passed through their enclosure, Harriet was loving it. We passed another herd of cows all different ...
