Shanice, Shantelle, Collin, Odaine, PJ, Paul
It should have been nine of us, but sleep and other things often intervene! Ready to walk at 8.30am from Abbey Green having left Papine at 6.40am.
The going gets tough as we start up Jacob's Ladder... but the views are spectacular... on top of the world
Don't worry Shanice, half and hour gone, just about three hours more... Work at Portland Gap - a gazebo
and a 'gate-keeper's' cabin... wow, how did all those materials reach up here? Ancient woodland, thankfully protected
Waiting for others, but not far to go... and finally the triangle at the Peak, all 7402 feet above sea level
Misty but we did get some views through breaks in the clouds... the cabin at the top is in a sorry state
Looks like a happy crowd... well done guys. Now the walk back down, eventually to the Yallahs River for a cooling dip
Did we really go there??? Looks lovely and now on our way home... til next time.
