بِسْــــــــــــــــــــــمِ اﷲِارَّحْمَنِ ارَّحِي

Small Hiker went to check out whether Ayer Hitam Forest Reserve was already open as what was told to him by a friend. Sad to say, it wasn't yet and the notice from Jabatan Perhutanan Selangor was still there. He didn't dare to proceed, scared that he'd unnecessarily get caught and had to pay hefty penalty.

As planned, he left immediately for his Plan B, Bukit Gasing, armed with his new DSLR, a basic Nikon D3000.

Without wasting much time, after having his roti canai breakfast with 'Milo tarik' at Raju he drove off to the entrance of Bukit Gasing. He was lucky as he got a parking spot near the entrance. It was already late (around 8.45am) and some people were already leaving

A very popular weekend hiking spot and both sides of the road leading to the entrance were lined up with cars by the time hew was there. Quite a number of them were on family trip and few of the youths were jogging along the trails. How he wished that he could just join the youths jogging but then thinking about his knees that he's trying to protect, he wouldn't!

Small Hiker was taking it slow and enjoyed the time taking pictures with his new camera. And it took him almost 2 hours to complete the trip. He was also using a different trail for the exit, a third one. The first exit was using the same entrance, the second exit was at the suspension bridge and this was jut the opposite children playground.

There will be no hiking activity next week as Small Hiker is planning to run some errands! The next activity will be Bukit Tabur and it's open for guys only!
