My brother in law thinks my sister is crazy, she works 6 months or so & then goes trekking for about 4 months & spends the rest of the time on vacation with him, riding Harleys, lately it has been in Canada, but, they have ridden from their home in Connecticut to California, Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Daytona Bike Rally, etc.

She has trekked PERU, Nepal, Inca Trail to Machupicchu, & a couple mountains like Mt. Washington, in New Hampshire, she treks that to get in shape

You know, i think she is nuts too


LOL just like you
Nice pix by the way, ENJOY!!!

It really is dana. I went from wearing just a t shirt and sweats and having it be probably 43*F down to near 20*F and snowing hard. If you look at the first picture, we were probably half hour into our ascent. After 3 hours I took that last picture in the ascent and the clouds were getting dark very quickly and the wind came out of nowhere! It's scary, I had even seen a woman climbing by herself, starting at 3:00. She hopefully made it down safely considering daylight is gone at 6:00.

Thats awesome! i'd love to go to places like that. It's the fact that nobody has set foot in the same spot I had. I was thinking about it on the rock climbing section, I'm making my own path. I just love that aspect.

its really great when you have been where no one else has been

its a real bummer when you go to a place, either on a mountain, in a forest, or any place where it is calming, thinking no one had ever been there in a long time If ever. Then you walk along a game path & find candy wrappers, water bottles, handi wipes, etc.

Did you know that Mt. Everest is now called the worlds highest junk yard ?
The Path Too Well-Traveled
As the highest mountain on Earth, Mt. Everest represents the ultimate challenge for mountain climbers. But a different challenge faces the Inventa Everest 2000 Environmental Expedition, a team currently on the mountain. The participants have no interest in reaching the 29,035-foot summit. Instead, these climbers aim to clean Mt. Everest.

Mt. Everest is becoming known as the world's highest junkyard. Why is this mountaineering mecca in Nepal so polluted?

Thanks in part to Mt. Everest, tourism to Nepal (located between China and India) has exploded over the past few decades. Sir Edmund Hillary and his Sherpa climbing partner, Tenzing Norgay, were the first to conquer Mt. Everest in 1953. Now as many as 400 people each spring and fall attempt to climb Mt. Everest, or Sagarmatha, as the people of Nepal call it.

Not surprisingly, the increase of adventurers has led to an increase in litter, especially along the most popular route to the summit—the Southeast Ridge. The trail consists of a base camp at 17,600 feet and four additional camps closer to the summit. Since the first successful expedition, at least 50 tons of trash have accumulated.

At least 10 tons of garbage litters the 26,300-foot South Col, also called Camp IV. Most mountaineers make their final assault on the summit from here.
Here is picture of last years trash

Are you kidding me? We discussed this while we were climbing, it feels too wrong to deface such a thing. I didn't see a single wrapper or bottle. it's awesome.

Well I thought I had more pictures from the digital camera, but they were mostly the same. Once it got cold, it didn't want to work anymore either.
