The View from Up Here
We made it!
Saturdays are becoming great fitness days. The hike up Cerro de Borrego takes us about an hour, which includes a few good rests and a bottle of water.
You can see that the rains have washed out part of the slope, but maintenance crews have cleared the stairs. (The hike is partly on steps, partly on dirt, and partly on rock.)
Once we reach the top, we spend an hour or more exploring the ruined fortress and the trails that lead around the hilltop. We still have quite a few left to explore, which leaves us looking forward to many more Saturdays.
This week, a rarely trodden path gave me the chance to photograph butterflies which have remained elusive at lower elevations.
And, we saw some butterflies-to-be.
It's beautiful up there! Happy trails.
