Cacapon Mountain 11.28.2011

Since it was supposed to rain all day Wednesday Tuesday (and so far, it has been), I thought I'd get my Cacapon Mountain hike in Tuesday Monday while the leaves were dry. The creek picture at the start of the trail was taken at 3:24 p.m., and the ultimate picture was taken at 5:09 (sunset is at 4:50 pm these days...I had to hotfoot it down the mountain).

















So I made it back home with no more than the usual ankle-spraining, except for the very last part of the hike when a step on a leaf-covered rock resulted in my left ankle hurting all night. It seems to be fine now, though. See what I do for all you kids?

UPDATE: Mountain Laurel update for Jennifer

No, you're right. Hike was on Monday...at least I got the date right.

And it's still raining! I should have thought of getting all those leaves off the porch yesterday, too.

I REALLY want your back deck!
Unless it's a year that you need to re-stain. Then, I'll take it the year after that..

It doesn't embiggen enough for old eyes, but that looks like quite the ferocious ridgeline - about 400+ near vertical feet and like seven hundred up from the bottomland.

If you're north aligned, that valley to the west and the streambed farther west is about the most defensible position I think I've ever seen. You should put some rations and gear out there. They couldn't get you out of there with NATO...

I love Capcom, they've made some great games over the years.

Watch it, dude, you're getting old, and hiking in a motorized vehicle just isn't as fun.
