Angels Landing


This is the the very edge of hiking more on the mountaineering side... Ive done a bunch of the climbing stuff but it didn't really help, I was still nervous, maybe more for my wife; one slip and your totally dead. Its such a good hike. they have chains all the way up. I would have preferred ropes, It would have felt safer. I circled some more people if you click on it. This odd sliver of rock is 1500 feet of shear cliff on both side. Truly amazing what God has done. Lee and Jo are in the foreground. They are our good friends(hopefuls for Team Married) and camping partners, very adventurous...

Man that hike is sweet and I didn't even make it to the top. My mind stops working when I get close to really high ledges. So I got up tot he chains and ended up turning back. But it was still awesome. Those narrows look sweet as well. I have never done those before.

I 2nd yours and James' words on the hike. It is truly amazing. We went there in March with James and a huge group and nobody thought I was going to make it to the top, but I sure as heck did! And even with a huge camera backpack loaded with gear on my back. It was hell getting to the top though and I realized how out of shape I was, but felt accomplished! I have some pics of it on my Flickr page if you want to check them out...just search for oscphotography
