Longest trip up the mountains so far. Hit the three peaks (540m, 545m and 596m) that I've been eyeing off on the maps and one smaller one at the beginning of the hike.
|Ice covered stairs. Frightening.|
|A tiny little bit of snow on the trail.|
|View from the first peak where I'd been last week and the phone shut down.|
|Apparently a bear escaped from a local zoo here in 2010.|
They caught it.
|Just before the third peak. This doesn't look so bad here. I wasn't prepared to go up|
this way and even less prepared to come down this way. I found an easier way up.

Good hike, great views, cold weather (-10c to -3c), a bit of snow around the place. Rolled my ankle on a rock somewhere just after the first peak and landed on my knees and took a bit of skin off my left palm. Luckily didn't hurt my ankle cos it would have been a long walk back.
Bought some NB Trail Minimus yesterday but am yet to take them out. Still had the KT tape on from the other day and shin felt relatively good. Jogged where I could and jogged last km home on concrete.
