After exchanging contact information and bidding The Anderson’s farewell, I went to the Mount Carelton trail head.
The sign read: “Mount Carelton: 8.4 km”
…that not so far I thought.
Well, the total trip equates to about 10 miles worth of hiking with an elevation gain of about 1,500 ft…I haven’t hiked like this for at least 3 or 4 years.
Turns out that at a whopping 2,600 ft, Mount Carelton is the tallest mountain in all of the Atlantic Provinces…and no kidding, I was on top of the world when I reached the top. : )
Started the hike at 9am and arrived back at the car at 3pm...it was time to press on to Prince Edward Island…and soon if I’m to get there before dark!
