How I know it’s been a good day: I’ve taken more than 50 photos.
Yep – it was a good photo day.
I got up at 5 – early yes but totally worth it. I was at the trailhead at 9 and began the upward grind. Hell – 1500 metres. Whew! But the trees are magnificent and the sunlight was glorious and the temp was low 20s with a breeze. In other words, perfect hiking weather.
And I was pretty much alone all day. Said hello to a couple of people on the way down and that was it.
I love Crest Mountain’s huge plateau and succession of ridges. I love its 360 views from the top.
