I took this picture to show these small hemlock pines. They sit on the peak of a rock mound in a bout six inches of dirt.
These shots are from atop Twin Mt. We have now been climbing eight hours, but cannot stop. I also made a bad judgement call on this climb. I cut back on four pounds of water to make the packs lighter. WE were out of water soon. I took some BLACK bog water and strained it through my kerchief. Then used our water puifier to purify the water. It was enough to save the day and wasn't bad at all. The purifuer is one of the best.
View over the rocks at a distant peak.
This is looking back at Mt. Guyot, where we just left a few hours ago.
