Alpine Lakes Wilderness, Hiking, TNAB

O’er the Ramparts we watched

Alright, I’m so behind on photo processing and blogging that I’ve realized that the best way to deal with it is to just post our most recent adventure and pretend like I haven’t missed months worth of terribly exciting content. Maybe I’ll catch up at some point, maybe not.

Rampart Ridge

I’ve been fighting the dreary doldrums lately (ok, so it seems like I always am), but Josie shook me out of my marmot-like state of hibernation and got me out on my first TNAB hike in two months. Ach, my burning lungs and quivering loins!

Our destination was Rampart Ridge, a short but oh so steep hike to an area so gorgeous it’s hard to believe it’s right next to the freeway. I had been feeling iffy all week (possibly a lingering something-or-other from a bout of food poisoning the week before), so I got the privilege of feeding the heather on our ascent. This was the first and, hopefully, the last time I have ever vomited on a hike.

Even though I got to taste my lunch twice, I was so happy I went. Great group of people, a beautiful, hazy sunset, a fun trail…it was enough to jolt me out of my malaise for an hour or two.

    Hi Ingunn,

    Well, you might be having a rough time of things but sure you look happy up on the mountains. I thought of you on our recent trip to Scotland when I saw hikers around – thinking how much I wish I could do what you do :-).
