Hochimini Multiuse Trail – #6e

All photos taken on September 2, 2022.

We like to start our mountain hikes slowly with the easier hikes, to enable us to acclimatize to the change in altitude. The day was also supposed to heat up to +28 C (82 F), so we did the hike in the morning, when we and the air were fresher.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. We have only started hiking this trail in the last 2 years. It is now one of our favourite trails. Can’t believe we missed hiking it for so long in all our years of visiting Jasper. Thanks for reading and commenting. Allan

    1. It was a great morning walk, even if you return the same way. Mountain biking is one of those extreme sports that appeals to younger folks. My old body cannot take all the jarring. That being said, we did ride our E-bikes on trails here. Stay tuned. Thanks so much for reading Lyssy. Have a great weekend. Allan


    1. Thanks Leighton. I always get mountain asters and common fleabane confused. I much prefer the asters. It was so nice to see the chipmunks. They are rare in our neck of the woods, but plentiful in the mountains. Thanks for reading. Allan

    1. I guess it is enough that it is named 6e. Wildland seemed a good name for it when we hiked it first, until we saw another trail with the same name. Hochimini has a lot going for it and it was certainly not a busy trail, even on the Labour Day weekend. Thanks for reading Bernie. Allan
