This was my first time hiking up Boulder and I was a bit nervous about it after hearing how challenging it was. We started off by hiking through some familiar Cedar forest.
I have always wanted to climb up Boulder, but never have until this point. I heard about how hard it is to climb, so any time I had the chance to go on a trip to there, I did something else. Not this time though, it was time to tackle it.
It was a steady, but not too steep climb up. I was at the back taking photos and thought that we were way behind the main group. But, when we reached the meadows, I soon realized that wasn't the case! I elected to keep on going with my friend Gail until we would catch up with the others. Or at least make the ridge. Gail knew that we could do that. The others behind us probably wouldn't make it, though I was hoping they would. It turns out like us, they were confused where the trail was due to the lack of markers. We just headed for the ridge and eventually found some blue ribbons marking the trail.

Soon we were on the ridge, and there we found all of the hikers who were ahead of us. They were eating lunch. We sat down and joined them. Afterwards, some of the group decided to hike up the actual Boulder Mountain.

I could have gone on another hike while the weather was still good, the next weekend the club hiked up Caledonia Mountain. But I chose to stay home instead, and take some photos. I'll post what I took in the next post. Part of the reason that I chose to stay home was that the high of the day was going to 30 celcius! And that's a bit much for me. I really am liking that it's cooler now, as good as the summer was.
(It is a lot cooler now, I hate to think that Winter is on it's way. But I am also so excited, for snowshoeing!!!)
