Hike report 16/05/22 DoiPui and coffee shop loop

Instead of the heat and smoke we have experienced on hikes recently, our 12 hikers had a day of light rain and cool fog. Some even completed most of the hike wearing their raincoats, more for the warmth than to keep dry.

After our drive up to the starting point, we fairly sprinted up to Princess Sala for this quick photo, and then began our tricky descent toward the coffee shop. We noted that a new sporty railing has been added along side the first part of the trail, the steps been propped up, and a nicely carved wooden bench set up, though it was very wet from the rain. The other change is that the trail is wider than on previous hikes, making it much easier to zig-zag down.

Where we turned right on the way down, we paused to watch a winged insect which had just shed its skin and was quickly expanding in size and drying its beautiful new wings.

And only a bit farther down the trail an alert hiker spotted a yellow frog. Perhaps the rain was bringing out all this interesting life.

Since we had made such good time so far, we treated ourselves to more than an hour at the CMU coffee shop, enjoying the very good coffee with our snacks, and then asked a stranger to take a picture of our group in front. Somehow one hiker was missing or hidden, so that each group picture shows only 11 hikers.

Our GPS statistics showed we had walked 8.4 km., had an elevation gain and loss of 426 meters, and done it in about 3 hours (plus a long break at the coffee shop and a short excursion on a wrong trail). All but 3 of the hikers then enjoyed “refreshment” at our favorite restaurant at the temple parking lot.
