I Climbed a Mountain

Hey folks. Thank you for your concern during my brief absence. I'm sorry I left without any warning. I was having a bit of internet trouble last weekend, and then I left town for a couple of days. I'm back now. I may not post again this weekend because I've got some catching up to do around here. We'll see.

This week I climbed a mountain. I don't know the name of the mountain, but I do know it was pretty big. I'm an out of shape slob, so I nearly died a few times this week. Thanks to my very supportive friends, Paso and Allen, I made it up a combined vertical of 1500 meters. I'll be posting a few photos of our trip over the coming days.

The weather was cloudy and rainy all three days of our trip, but it was still beautiful. I didn't take very many photos while hiking up or down the mountain because I needed to focus all my energy on not dying. This photo was taken from the southwest face of the mountain, looking west.

Canon PowerShot S2 IS, 18mm, f/8.0, 1/250 sec, ISO 50

Lovely. The layered look of the distant mountains affects the tone of the photo.

Tim, if this was the only shot you got the whole climb, you did well! It is perfection!

Glad you didn't die, too. :o)

Hi Timmybomb,

Glad you made it! (there & BACK)

Nice shot - considering your likely physical state at the time of shooting - has potential for a nice blowup to hang in someones livingroom.

Hope you made lots of photos to show me.

Give my love to Bethany.

See you in a few weeks - with lots of grandchildren snaps to show you.

1500 metres? Yep, that qualifies as a big climb. I know I couldn't do it. BTW, nice pic!

Lovely shot, beautifully framed. I'm heading to BC for a week in Sept so hopefully I'll see some of this first hand.

Good to see you back Timmy. I was wondering where you'd gone.

This is a really nice shot. Love the different layers of mountains. Taking this one with the cameara vertical was definitely the right choice--really emphasizes the height of the mountains.

Timmy? Hello?? Are you out climbing another mountain???

Have we lost you to the world of mountain climbing?

Miss you, hope to see you around again soon.
