Did I mention we climbed a lot of hills today? We were in back country all day so took sandwiches with is for lunch. We had to ford a creek right around lunch time so after successfully crossing with no one falling in, we thought, this is the perfect time to stop for lunch. It was so relaxing sitting in the woods by the babbling creek enjoying the food and country. We only passed a few hikers today, one couple actually admitted they were kind of lost.
We made it to the Abby by three o'clock and I am do glad we did because we heard four monks doing an afternoon prayer with Gregorian chanting.
Little pool and water fall of mineral water along the trail
We will be up there in an hour or so.
