Did the same thing with Mt. Fuji.
Didn't work with Pikes Peak.
I love it! I was on top of it once - I was younger and skinnier (and some people said crazier) back then.
One of my favorite memories of Fort Lewis was standing on the parade field looking at Mount Rainier.
It's only 301 feet taller than Pikes Peak but it arises from a coastal plain where at Pikes Peak the surrounding altitude is 7000 feet.
Mount Rainer from Seattle (not my photo)
Pikes Peak from Garden of the Gods Colorado Springs.
As an added bonus Mount Princeton (Chaffee County Colorado 14,197 feet elevation) from Nathrop Colorado.
Post it Bro. Cant speak for anyone else but I'm more interested in the "Enjoying the Outdoors" part of this discussion than the "Gunz" part
Nope. It's a gun forum. We need to keep it gun centric or we'll end up getting this thread shut down. In fact I think the mods have been generous in that they haven't said anything where people have strayed.
Plus I'm the OP........................... so GUNS!
.. Out changing SD cards on trail cams again last week, took the single six as usual and took a pic of it on one of the cams to go with my other 50 Single Six / Trail Cam pix. First stop was 100 yds. out back; dumped some corn & apples in front of a trail cam where we can watch the critters from the house with binoculars. Coming back later two geese were already on the corn, zoomed the camera in from about 25 yards and got a shot; the trail cam is visible behind them...
..Walked past and realized there should be a shot of the geese with me in the photo. Swapped cards a few days later and there's me with my corn bucket & camera stopped to watch them...
.. Single Six not visible in that photo but I was enjoying the outdoors, & carrying, so hopefully we're back on topic and won't get shut down. This is a fun thread.
I carried my better than a rock LCPII
. I talked her into mushrooming with me. We hiked and atv'd around our woods for a couple hours. Finally she found our first mushroom of the year, and our only mushroom of the day!
We sat at our camp Overlook swing for a while and watched some lazy deer .
The farm dog went along also and had a great time in the woods.
We had given up on the shrooms, so I pointed the atv towards our bridge and we pulled the fishing rods out of the saddlebags.
I didn't count how many we caught, at least a dozen nice sized bass. It was great outdoor fun! We also had a pair of Honkers scolding us from the bank. They must have a nest nearby. I hope the raise some goslings there.
We released all the fish we caught as they were swollen with eggs. We usually keep one mess of fish when we have mushrooms to fry.
A great Easter Sunday.
I carried my Hellcat for church this morning , in its Desantis Slimtuk.
It seems my old sr9c has become my go-to woods gun. The cheap Fobus paddle holster is a great way to open carry while hiking.
I thought it might be time to wring out a .44 in preparation for getting into Moose country again. So a range session on Friday, and a hike Sunday.
Up into the hills we went.
There are some beautiful rock formations in this area.
More than a few Barrel Cacti were in bloom.
This area has been frequented by Deer and at least one Black Bear during the colder months.
But despite practicing my still hunting techniques with slow soft footsteps, keeping the wind in my face as much as possible, and scanning ahead with binoculars, I found no Deer or Bear. And no fresh sign either. I guess they're elsewhere right now.
The only notable sign was likely rather old, but a Deer bed this size and hidden behind stands of trees covering 180 degrees down slope, will probably be used again.
There's a mine on the way up.
It goes almost straight back for around 33 yards to a creepy looking doll sitting at a dead end.
Maybe it only seems creepy in this context.
Did four waterfalls on Easter day.
My carry was my 415 41mag.
I love the mountains, but I also love the foothills and the ridges...
I was not up here today, but I did carry this (yeah, I know -- it is a Glock, but since SB5078 was passed, I ordered a butt-ton of standard capacity mags and carried it because I was in an FDE kinda mood...)
The bears are active seeing 8. This mother and three cubs were enjoying walnuts in Cades Cove.
I recommend a can of bear spray for hiking in the National Parks it may save you a lot of legal headaches.
Enjoyed one of my favorite hikes to Charlie's Bunion. The ice on the trail added a lot of time to this 8 mile hike, but the views were great.
In addition to the bear spray I carried my LCPII 380 and 415 41mag. I saw a few open carry hikers. I need to find a holster that would work with my waist belt of my pack that would be comfortable.
My PSA Dagger with Holosun 507c
I see what you did there
Took the Glock.
And as always The Buck 110 and the Gerber Multitool
Also took the SAK Trekker.
And the Gerber Strongarm
I used it to split some wood
I did a couple of feather sticks and scraped up some Fatwood. I wood have tried it out on the Ferro Rod but we're under fire restrictions.
We spent the day yesterday hiking Falls Creek Falls State Park in TN.
Went to 5 of the 6 falls on a hike.
Carried my Ruger 380.
This is the first time we did the trail and really enjoyed it.
We had some nice views and saw lots of wildflowers.
We did see lots of animal droppings onthe trail. It was comforting to have my 41mag in my front pocket.
I'm green with envy.
Where's all the people?
Nice gun combo too. I bet they carry well and deploy quickly.
. Sometimes I hop out of a tractor and make a 10min circle in the woods.
I have found enough of the tasty fungi to have a few fried up with a porkburger(local favorite)
As you can see...I carried my fun little GSG 1911-22 this spring.
