Peak #13 9'748
« on: June 01, 2019, 09:37:05 PM »
Peak # 13 in my 20 peak challenge...many mountains here abouts are simply designated a number indicating elevation...i have been putting off doing this one for two decades simply because of the lack of info, long steep terrain and no trail to the top...That and i'm basically a lazy guy! :shrug:,thanks for looking...woods

What did you say?  You're lazy?  Gee whiz, I am a sloth compared to you.  This climb looked tough, as tough as that one about three climbs ago and then some.  The rock circle is interesting.  Any guess as to its makers.  Recent or old?  Looked recent in the video.  Over near my place there are many stone circles in the Bear Lodge, mostly on private land, that the timber cruisers find.  They usually have some interior "spokes" and one fellow I used to talk with thought they were smaller medicine wheels.  Anyway, interesting to find that out there.

It must be tough to keep going back down and getting the video camera for the next going away shot, especially in that steep country.  Thanks for posting these Dave, I enjoy watching them.

Thanks Stan :thumbsup:
I did not think these were very old...going by the short growth of spruce saplings coming up through the rocks on the one end i would guess not more than fifteen or twenty years...mighty slow growing under these conditions.
somebody went through some trouble getting this thing built...Sasquatch mebbe or a landing site for a UFO...or Both!!!

Another cool hike, and I'd say you were anything but lazy.

I can see why nobody accompanied you for the climb to the top of this particular peak.....it's gotta tell you something when your own dog abandons you! :lol:   

Once again, thanks Dave for going to the effort to record these videos....I know it takes up extra time to set up those 'going onward & upward' shots, but they do illustrate just what you are up against under these more difficult 'trail' conditions.  I would agree that laziness is not your problem.......obses siveness definitely, but NOT laziness! :rofl:
