Iron Mtn. Video Diary
Yea, this was a good day for a hike. The goal for myself was to get up in 4 hours. That was barely accomplished. I didn’t take so many pictures on this one since I was rushing to get to the top. Instead, I took a series of videos on the go.
Since I was under some time constraints and ended up pushing myself more than normal, I could really feel the pain on my body. It started of minor, with some tingly sensations in my right leg. But then that soon was in my hands also. At the end, on top, I was feeling pretty terrible. Lightheaded, I wouldn’t say dizzy. I was almost there though.
This was definitely worth the second going. The path after Alison Saddle is pretty much well used now. All the yucca that stabbed me the first time and made the route almost unbearable has been cut away. The loose scree is still there though. Those steep sections are killer and a real time slower on the way down. Took us 3.5 hours just to get back to the cars.
Alright, here’s some more pictures, and then video are after the jump.
Update: StarTrekathon has moved to http://www.justin.tv/duplincountyman
There isn’t a video at the top or hereafter. I ran out or memory and only had 20 shots of memory available for the rest of the day.
You can check out all my pics from the day here.
