Stunt Ridge Trail
Rescheduled from last Firday
Here is another Friday Morning Hike. Even Paul would have been proud of our last one. Crawling up a ridge trying to pick the best route. Sliding back 2 steps for 1. Battling snakes and scorpions… Well okay there weren’t any snakes. No scorpions either. Just some wild cucumber…Ouch.
This will be the fun Stunt Ridge up to the lookout tower. Then back down in a loop. There is just one part on the way down we might have to decide on.
