Cape Horn of Plenty
This is a sequel hike. I came up here last winter, but a prime time summer day is a different experience, especially when it’s with four other people. we came late in the day, and just blasted (okay, we walked steadily) up to the first few viewpoints. We encountered a woman wondering if we’d seen a friend of hers. He had just taken off running. First rule of hiking club: don’t leave your buddies. Second rule of hiking club: don’t ridicule those hikers who make foolish decisions. We found the guy later. All was well. Third rule of hiking club: don’t scare the heck out of your friends by leaning way too close to the edge of a cliff. Ah, what the heck.
We decided to turn around where there was a no trespassing sign that hadn’t been there in the winter. It would have been along walk to another pretty view and we were short on time. Still, a couple killer viewpoints and some good exercise with good company is about as good as life gets in my book. That and high quality chocolate ice cream.
