A Great Day To Be Alive & Climbing On Mt Colden 9-28-13
Most people are on the world, not in it -- have no conscious sympathy or relationship to anything about them -- undiffused, separate, and rigidly alone like marbles of polished stone, touching but separate. - John of the Mountains: The Unpublished Journals of John Muir Inspirational view from the LOJ Road on way to trail-head Marcy Dam Gelogical Marker a few miles from summit in a stone in a stream bed Break in the trees about half mile or so from summit Could see the "traffic" on neighboring peaks on a glorious fall day for climbing Nolan squeezing through a rock opening on way to summit of Colden Gliders were taking advantage of the beautiful weather to enjoy soaring and taking in the great peaks view. At one point 4 of them soared and swirled like eagles with each other Great view of Mt Colden, Coldens Rock Slides & False summit from Algonquin I took a few weeks earlier Nolan sketching on Mt Colden's false summit Big Slide Mt from Colden Algonquin Mt from Colden. Interesting seeing after being there just a few weeks before! Enjoying the view from High Peak #14/46!!!
