Alaskan on Bruse Hill, 2008

We parked next to the school, which is next to the cemetery which is next to the church NW of Bruse Hill on R198. It starts off easy enough walking down the road toward the quarry. Just before the quarry, we wandered up a lane on the left. The lane got bushier until it dumped us out above the quarry. From there, we meandered through the ever-closer clumps of tickling gorse and paused to say a few words about the most obvious of blackberry qualities until we encountered an old road. The best path there is basically straight across the road but just a bit to the left up a steep bank which, when wet, will muddy the reputation of the most arrogant. After more gorse and blackberries, the best route leads up to the left and into deep heather which, since some of our young group were not that tall, meant their bodies floated ethereally above a sea of green until they reached the summit monument. They complained some of not knowing what their feet were doing down there in the vegetative depths. The summit monument tells you where to stop. Going down is easier because of the trench plowed on the way up. At least until the gorse and blackberries again draw out those words you are not supposed to say in front of youth.
