With this morning’s ascent up Squak Mountain I’ve reached 33% of my mileage goal for the year and we’re 25% through the year. Elevation and number of hikes are flying by in comparison… Guess my goals were lopsided. I shared the trail with runners and unleashed dogs in masses. It was only about 1,600 ft of elevation gain but I wanted to ease myself back in after a few week break. Ill be paying for my jog down tomorrow I imagine… Old knees! I think the west peak was the likely point I should’ve headed for but I could t resist the chimney and keeping it to a loop. Too bad I missed the old mill. I love checking out old buildings… Who doesn’t though?
