Echo mountain
This was a hike. It always is. It was my second time climbing that mountain. I went up there last year too for the 4th of July fireworks. This time I set the stop watch feature on my iPod. According to my calculations, the distance from the beginning of the hike to the top is probably just under four miles. I did it in about an hour and thirty minutes.

Once there, and after catching my breath, I started talking to the other people about inspiration point. That location is at the very top, 2 miles further and way more steep. I don't mean to say that I was approaching each and every person asking them if wanted to go to inspiration point. That would be weird, especially since the two other people I began to chat with were both men.

These are the black and white pix I took using 127 film. The ld brownie camera actually made a good conversation piece. I like this little camera because it weighs next to nothing. The developing costs are pretty high, though. A roll of eight exposures costs about $9.00 and that's not including prints.

You guys are having quite the party up there! I've never made it to the top to Echo Mountain, although I've hiked up to the remains of the old Alpine Tavern and some of the remains of the vernicular train system. Someday I'll make it to the top.
