Bogtoá is nestled in a valley, which makes weekday morning hikes accessible to city residents. We hiked one of my brother’s favorite trails on a Monday morning. Since it was a work day, we only passed one other person on the trail.
The hike was a tad steep in some places, and the altitude definitely made it a challenge. I like to think I’m in fairly good shape, but this was a humbling experience. My (exceptionally patient) brother and I somehow we managed to make it to the top.
After a few false starts (i.e. we got lost), we made it down the mountain in record time. Unfortunately, record time was exactly 6 minutes after the trail closed. Thus, yours truly has officially jumped a 10 foot barbed wire fence. How’s that for a city girl?
