Goat Mtn 16/08/08

Steve on Goat Mountain:
“Nine of us met at the foot of the gondola at Grouse and took the skyride up to the trailhead. It was hot, damned hot, but the views were rewarding and I was thankful we had not done the Grind on the way up. There wasn’t much shade to be had and my current lack of conditioning was made worse by the heat. Many of us underestimated how fast we would go through the water and had to share. You should be warned that the crowds at the skyride are insane, but the Goat Mountain trail itself was quiet. A big thanks to first timer Angele who not only knew the trail well (I didn’t have to pull out my book) but also has one of the most impressive hiking resumes I’ve heard in a long time! Fun group too! The trip was only made better when a medical doctor actually recommended I drink a coke after a hike…”
