We hike a lot. But there are a lot of people here who like to go to the mountains. Nearly every Monday somebody comes to work with a story about hiking. This past weekend, 4 Americans we work with hiked 16km's in 7 hours. They were blistered and complaining of hip damage, but they were still smiling. It was surprisingly cool at altitude this Saturday: wet snow and frost. And, yes, that's an apple tree the kids are standing in front of.
