| A hike of 4hours uphill by many... but pretty views along the way so that it took me 9hours and still i didn't reach the top at 6pm.
(In addition to stopping often to catch my breath.) And walking down a mountain without a trail - not a good idea. Merging in the dark with a trail in the woods
- not a good idea. 15 hour hiking day, last 6hours without water, lost bushwacking through river-bushes in the dark for 1.5 hours -- can't wait to go back, really
- next time I will make other mistakes, not same ones.
