Hiking The Lions

Saturday, August 1st, 2009

This morning I woke up just past the crack of dawn and headed up to hike The Lions!  The total round trip took Lisa and I 6 hours and 50 minutes, including a 45 minute break that we took sitting on top of the West Lion.  The total trek was 17km, including our actual climb up the West Lion.  It wasn’t in the books, but there was a creepy rope path/climb that took about 30 minutes to actually summit the Lion.  You can check out our GPS log on Google Maps, check out the 175 photos in my web albums, or click on the image below to check out the high-res panorama shot I stitched from the top!

Lastly, here’s the other data logged by my GPS on the hike, logged by My Tracks.  The battery did cut out on our descent so it isn’t completely accurate.

Mark’s Black Tusk Photos

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

Mark brought his Nikon D80 SLR with us and took some pretty epic shots! The best that I’ve seen so far is this crazy panoramic shot he took up from the very top of the Black Tusk!

There’s also a whole bunch more in a photo album on his website.
