Default Saint Mark's Oct. 27/19

St Mark's is a favourite short hike off the north shore,a nice hike with a great view at end to enjoy. Ziff, Ingrid, and I left parking lot after 9 am, and arrived just before 11 am at the first lookout. Took a brief break, pictures, and led up to the summit, a bushy and forested spot with views obscured by trees. Then to the second lookout and had lunch, and basked in sun an views, with several other hikers.

Left 12:30 and returned shortly after 2 pm to the parking lot. A beautiful day with good friends.

Writeup in All Trails: indicate this is near a 11 km return trip, in and out, 605 meters elevation gain.

I thought I recognised you on the trail Karl. You were on your way down from the summit when you passed me on the way up with my two kids.

Neat.

I missed you totally, were you near the summit when I passed by ? It was a wonderful day for the hike.



Ingrid, thank you for putting up those great pictures.
