Weekend Special 41: Guilt-free

It was cloudy and raining on and off until yesterday. We decided to go for hiking in the morning as the skies were clear and temperature around 13 C. We had around 3 hours in hand of which we used 2:15.

Looking back.

As I mentioned in my earlier post,  I donot have my camera with me and pictures were taken with Samsung s3. We covered distance of 8 km and walked upto height of 450 m above sea level. In the last leg the inclination was 12 %. We were tired but not exhausted. ( In last three days we have walked around 20 km 🙂 ).

Note: I forgot to take pictures of the many cattle grids we had to cross. I wonder if they work for sheeps! Has anyone of you seen a sheep crossing cattle grid?

Tomorrow I will be travelling again. Hope you all are enjoying your weekend.

 

Weekend Special 40: Ooh Shiny

We here are instantly distracted just by the idea of a few hours of sunshine. Who will stay in! Following this theory, yesterday I used my weekly training time (training time during office hours) of two hours to enjoy a nice warm hiking tour. I covered a distance of around 9 km and went upto a height of 360 m above sea level. I met lots and lots of local and tourist on way. Everyone was shinning and in good mood. But I am glad I walked along some new paths in the forest and relish few moments of solitary with in nature. Here is a collection of pictures.

BTW the weather behaved exactly as forecasted. After the wonderful sunny hours there were episodes of heavy showers in the afternoon and it continues until now.

Weekend Special 35

Last Sunday I visited the local Botanical garden. It was rose day but due to non stop rain for more than three weeks, the flowers suffered a lot.

Actually on Sunday we made a new record of consecutive rainy summer days. This june is the most wettest June, earlier it was recorded in 1952. It’s raining every day including today 🙂 . Anyways, I managed to take some pictures and I hope you would like them.
