Hiking Carrot Mountain
It was a good thing she paused for prayers here, as shortly after she got going too fast and missed a corner, resulting in a spill with a slide upside down head first on her back. I came to rescue her, finding her hanging on to a branch for dear life with one hand and the other on her Nikon. She got up on her own steam... luckily with only a few scratches on her back.
This was one more time I wish I had brought my Nikon so I could use the telephoto to pull that new bridge up closer. But in general I am always amazed at how good the pictures come out with the iPhone camera.
We dragged our tail feathers down the final stretch to our car. It took us about 90 minutes to come from the summit back off the mountain. Everest it is not... but we got some good exercise and had a very interesting hike. We met only one guy hiking on the trail... and I saw a couple more hikers trucks parked near mine when I got back.
