A Day Hike in Noumea

After arriving in Noumea in October I was invited to go hiking with Myriam, Elaine, and Emma. These French women from a small network of friends organize a different hike each Wednesday in a radius of a half-hour drive from the town of Noumea. Today our hike was in the Koghis Mountains that span the distant skyline behind the port. I was advised to bring my lunch, wear good hiking boots, and take my camera. This should be a fun easy day thought I, "how much trouble should it behiking with 50 year olds?" After a leisurely start on an easy track it soon turned to large rocks that pierced through the ground over which we climbed to the summit in a two hours chasing streaming ribbons as markers. WOW what a delightful view. These ladies extremely fit and sprightly, then quickly slid to the bottom of the mount on a shorter route. After aching for two days afterwards I can see why their husbands avoid joining them and nicknamed the girls the gazelle's.
