certainly was a long walk that day, specially on the way back to car, but an enjoyable day out :clap: , though a one stage a thought i might have too carry Bear as she was tiring out quick with the heat.

Nice one quoman :D I think these are definitely fair weather hills, so you did good on that front. I've still got them to do, so hope I get the same sort of weather you did.
