Today I hiked the Sugarloaf Path with my hiking buddy Viola, we started at the South trailhead near Quidi Vidi and slowly but steadily worked our way up to Logy Bay. The weather was fine, nothing special but at least much better than the rest of the week is looking in the forecast. Creature wise, we saw one eagle and one seal, a rather paltry catch by East Coast Trail standards, but I was happy to see them nonetheless.
Fall colours in the White Hills were close to the ground, as every little Blueberry bush had turned red.
After the uphill slog onto Bawdens Highlands I was glad to finally go down to the ocean again.
We had a lunch lunch break at the Skerries, the incoming waves were great to look at, and this is where we saw the seal popping up out of the water a few times.
After six hours we arrived in Logy Bay, the hike really doesn’t have to last that long, but it does when you stop at every picture opportunity, which we did 🙂
