Montanha do Pico

Goal set: Mt Pico, 7713′ and go…

Redline Guides Álvaro Marques and Ken Hodges haven’t been around all week. They’ve been hiking in Portugal — the country Álvaro hails from. Not just any old hiking, either. On this trip they had their sights set on the 7713-foot (2351m) Montanha do Pico (Mt Pico) the country’s tallest mountain. Specifically Mt Pico is a stratovolcano located on Pico Island in the mid-Atlantic archipelago of the Azores. What follows are some photos taken during their trip.

Mt Pico’s summit lies ahead. Poor “Alpine” — Álvaro’s own Arlette Laan creation — rests up for the final push. Photo by Álvaro.

Reminiscent of our own White Mountain.

A bit of an undercast.

Álvaro pushes on, ever upward, toward the top.

What a stunning landscape.

We don’t lead tours to this area, per se, but we could if it was requested. For now it looks like it was a wonderful hiking vacation in a pretty special place for two of our guides. Nice to have you fellows back.
