I climbed Pinnacle Mountain Alone
Every year people make New Year’s resolutions. I have made several this year. And I have been able to keep pretty much all of them. One of my resolutions was to photograph more. So I became part of a group that is doing a 52 week photo challenge. It was originally started by a gentleman for his students and just got bigger. Every week there is a new subject matter for what needs to be photographed. Last week’s challenge was landscape.
Now I enjoy hiking but it is mainly something I do with my husband. I don’t usually go alone but he has started school so he isn’t able to go with me. You don’t really have a choice when you want to get sunrise photos. I got up really early and headed to Pinnacle Mountain. I work nights so anything before 11 is early. LOL!! I got lucky and the gate was open before 6:30. I am a bit slow when it comes to hiking. I thought I was going to die about half way up. But I made it with about 10 minutes to spare before sunrise. It was an amazing view. I loved every minute of it. I can’t wait to do it again. Maybe when it’s a little warmer.
As a side note: Apparently, I am weird because I was more worried about mountain lions than being kidnapped. I was the only person there except for this lady who was walking her dog. My husband was very worried about me. But I randomly texted him so all was good.
