The buzzards were circling, but we showed them. We made it all the way to the top! Of course, there were lots of stops and lots of huffing and puffing along the way.
This hike was recommended in our cruising book as "fantastic" and "steep". It was both, but we are glad we went for it.
This is the view from the bottom - check out the switchbacks!
The trail was marked by "cairns" - rock piles that fellow hikers had built to mark the trail. Of course, this just made us think of our amigos in Albuquerque, Joe and Leah Cairns!
Moondance is behind me - the bay farthest right - but we could only see the mast.
After the hike, we celebrated with cervezas - of course. And, a swim at the beach at Isla Coyote.
A very good day!
