Zoos seem to be a lot less awe-inspiring now that I'm older. I notice the huge electrical wires and it feels wrong that these animals are held there their whole lives. It was a little depressing in certain areas.
Do you think my lady can handle the hike? I would really like to take her out there.
Probably. It's only a few miles off a road. Nothing very strenuous. Not much elevation gain (as in you won't notice it). Might seem a bit harder as we start at 6,000ft, so it feels a bit harder than the same thing at sea level. You guys should be fine so long as you're able to walk and have good shoes (ankle support on boulders and rocks).
Some pics from today:
Cleaning a rockface with my little red truck way down there.
This large piece of rock (12ft tall on one side) seperated from the mountainside. There was a bolt on it (for climbing), but it was either cut by some douchebag, or sheared off by the force of the fall.
Stuff to be cleaned off.
Cut bolts, cut off by some morons with spraypaint who painted a swastika on the rockface.
Some kids with one Subaru WRX STI, one normal WRX, and a "Speedwurk" Ford Escort. I love how everything has to have a gay fake German name.
Rattlesnake (I don't know sh*t about snakes, so I don't know what kind of rattler. The poisonous kind that I don't want to piss off.)
Mt Hawkins massif with different angles and whatnot before sunset.
Twin Peaks at various levels of zoom, after sunset. Looked a lot nicer in reality. I need your $80 bajillion dollar camera, Roman.
