This was a popular hike which attracted 16 hikers. The smiles on their faces in the attached pictures tells it all. Again we had a greatly diverse, international group, all fit, enthusiastic, and “well behaved”. We were the right number to fill 2 song taos for the transport to and from Wat Suthep, and met no problems from the bikers. In fact their numbe rs looked like the normal for Sundays. As we reached the Catholic center at the beginning of the hike the usual family of dogs came out to bark at us, and one of them attached himself to us until we reached the palace.

We were pleased to find the new fence around the palace finished, although the path which follows it has not yet returned to a natural state and there were a few piles of barbed wire to be avoided. Also the nature trail still has fallen trees over it in several places. Finding our way around obstacles without losing the trail is just part of what makes a hike interesting. Although we didn’t spot any snakes or other interesting creatures, we did see some colorful flowers and mushrooms and heard much bird song. We were actually back at the temple by about 1:30, 1/2 hour sooner than we had anticipated although we had walked at a leisurely to moderate pace and stopped often to regroup.
