Congrats to them!
« on: August 20, 2010, 22:11:31 »
Well, I knew I was able to do it, but I was wondering if the kids would make it. Finally, the challenge was for the wife! The kids just ran in front of us for the whole hike (4.5 hours to go up and 4 hours to go down). I made sure to stay at the end of the line as to not leave anyone behind (I definitely had to slow the kids down more than once!). We took a harder trail down and it showed in the time it took us to come back.



Now you can call them "mountain goats" (6 and 8 )!

WTG guys! That's quite a feat (feet?) to accomplish. Even better as a family!  :D :D

Wow!  Mountain goats indeed. 

La moyenne des adultes prennent environ 6 heures pour atteindre le sommet si je me souviens bien (je l'ai atteint plus vite, mais pas à pied  :P )

Si toute la famille aime ce genre de longue randonnée, je vous recommande le sentier du mont Albert en Gaspésie.  J'ai fait la boucle de 17 km il y a une vingtaine d'années, mais je me souviens encore des paysages.  Un des plus beau sentiers du Québec.

En effet, nous l'avons monté il y a quelques années. Le garde-parc nous avait recommandé de ne pas y aller parce qu'il y avait trop de nuages, mais comme nous étions de passage dans la région... Nous y sommes allés quand même. Juste comme on arrivait en haut, les nuages se sont éclaircis et nous avons eu droit au plus magnifique des spectacles. Les nuages passaient et restaient accrochés aux roches, puis s'en allaient de nouveaux. Ensuite, ça été du soleil mur à mur. Une des plus belles randonnées jusqu'à ce jour.

Of course there are! I made sure to study geocaching.com before venturing out there.

Wish I could have hiked it, but there is no way my wife would have joined me.  We were there a few weeks ago and drove up, and she did not even want to hike to the Hut.  At least we got the webcam and 911 cache.
