Starting point.

Starting point.

For our hike on Sunday,  January 12th 2014 , we met at the Arboretum car park before we were driving to our starting point. Unfortunately on our way to the Valley Cafe , we lost 3 or 4 people and I would like to sincerely apologize for this mishap.

At 8:20 AM 38 hikers and 2 dogs from the Valley Cafe started to  walk slowly uphill.  After around 1 hour and 10 minutes we arrived safely at a water stream where we stopped around 15 minutes for a break. During it’s search for potential food sources,  one of the Valley Cafe dogs slipped unfortunately into the water  and had to be rescued by one of the hikers.

Short Break.

Short Break.

After the break, we first walked along the water stream , had then to ascend up to the ridge followed by a smoothly up- and downhill hiking.

After having walked for around 2 hours and 20 minutes, we stopped for our lunch break during which the 2 dogs disappeared. When we continued with our hike , some of us were falling over because a lot of small loose stones were  spread on the trail.

After we arrived at a junction , we started to walk back to the Valley Cafe, where fortunately the 2 dogs were already waiting for us .

The total time of the hike was about 5 1/2 hours .

This was a very good and enjoyable group staying together and looking for each other all the time .

Some of us went back home , some stayed at the Valley Cafe for cakes, meals and drinks.

Thanks to all of you !
