Our winner James Anderson reported back on the guided hike with Graeme Pole he won. He had such an experience!
“It was one GREAT HIKE…Graeme is a first rate host and guide! We took on the Paget Peak summit and it was a very rewarding and informative hike….he stormed the mountain like a true mountaineer while waiting patiently every so often for the ‘cubically contained’ weekend trekker to catch up 🙂
Graeme knows these mountains and their history and was telling me stories and about other peaks he has summited on the way up, probably to keep my mind off the seering pain that was beginning in my thighs!
His family also came along for the hike and they were also great hiking companions…his little girl of 6 did her first summit…well done for Olivia and a little motivation for me 🙂
All in all it was a wonderful day and it truly is priceless to have hiked with Graeme and his family!
Thanks again for putting on a contest that gave me the opportunity to explore the world through the eyes of a true mountaineer!”
