On Top of the World
19 November 2011
Heading south from Santa Rosalia we were able to climb to the top of two big hills (we like to call them mountains) that we hadn't conquered before.
The first one was right off of El Burro Cove in Bahia Concepcion. We could see the switchback trail from our anchorage, but two years ago when we tried to find the start of the trail with some other cruisers, we just couldn't tell where to go -- and at the base we couldn't see the switchback. This year, the trail head was marked, so we were able to hike to the top and were rewarded with a beautiful view of Bahia Concepcion.
On our next stop, at Punta Pulpito, we were surprised one evening to see some people pop up on top of that big prominence! We hadn't realized there was a trail leading up there -- but now that we knew it was doable we set out to shore with Prairie Oyster and climbed to the top! Another good hike and breathtaking view.
