what a great climb this was. overlooking the dead sea in a place loaded with history . I was given a rams horn to blow at the top of the mount which echoed in the canyon surrounding Masada. This horn which is meant to stir the soul will now be blown at the top of every summit. Onward and Upward.
we actually drove to the top, not quite to the summit. It was getting dark and we did not actually climb. however this is a fantastic peak i hope to return to conquer some day.
The most recent summit. The top of tibidabo In Barcelona. Two train a bus a funicular elevator and steps led to the foot of Christ.. Literally. The very top of the basillico @ tibidabo gave us breath taking 360 degree
views of barcellona freezing temperature and very strong winds were part of the bargain. onward and upward!
The next scheduled climb is Mt Junipero Serra near Big Sur.

Lee and I left from elephant rock at 9:02am , climbed the rock city trail through the trail of time and on up the the summit trail. we reached the summit @ 12:25pm. There was no view the entire climb. The fog was very thick and it was windy and cold at the top. On the way down we dropped below the fog and clouds and the views were spectacular. 12 mile round trip 3849 ft Summit made for a long and tiring day. Onward and Upward!
