Grouse to Mountain Highway
On the Baden Powell between Grouse and Mountain Highway.
Today Neil and I decided to go back to the Baden Powell trail and run from Grouse to Mountain Highway. We parked the car at Grouse Mountain. It is a great work out with lots of climbing out of Grouse! Once we arrived at Mountain Highway we were both not motivated to do the return trip. Maybe we could get a ride back to Grouse? We phoned Craig who lives at the base of Mountain Highway - he picks up but darn he is in Steveston. We decide to run up Mtn Highway for a bit and then descend to the Starbucks at the bottom of the hill. Once there we asked the Barista to call us a taxi to take us back to the car at Grouse. 3 hours today = 15 hours for the weekend so far. And, I rode the stationary bike for 40 minutes tonight during the hockey game - the stress was getting to me! The Canucks lost 4-3 in overtime - game 7 Tuesday night in Vancouver. Plan to get out locally tomorrow for a couple of hours and then it will be rest day!
