The day started off well, we met at Richmond park and ride and left for the trail heads. We dropped a car off at Monroe trail head and proceeded back to the Bamforth Ridge trail in our cars.

Our hike started at 9:30 and we plunged ourselves up the mountain. We took lunch at a ridge and tried to get out of the sun for a rest. Then we continued and made it to the clearing. Some of us decided to go to the summit and off we went. Next we made our way down the Monroe trail, happy that we didn’t have to go back down the Bamforth Ridge trail. We made it to the bottom around 5 o’clock happy that our hiking had successfully come to an end.
