There was a part that was so steep I started to lose grip and had to yell for Glen to help me because I couldn't grab onto anything. There were no trees for me to reach, the rock to was holding onto had moss that was peeling off and my hiking boots didn't have any grip. I was going to fall to my death, well I would have broke something for sure. He quickly put his gun down and grabbed onto a tree and reached for my hand and pulled me to where I could grab a tree myself. So my brother saved my life, or arm, leg you name it he saved me. So thank you Glen.
We made it to the top. At this point I was dying. That was such a work out it wasn't funny. I just wanted to stay to the top for ever. The view was unbelievable. As kids would go up there all the time, but there was a 4wheeler trial we used so it was a lot easier to get up there. Plus we were a lot younger too. We took tons of picture and had to go back down. You would think going down the mountain / hill would have been easier for me but because of my bad knees it wasn't. Every step was hurting so bad. On a scale from 1 -10 it was an 6 to 7. I can work through pain but the none stop of it all just sucked. When we got to flat ground I was so relieved. We walked to where the pond was because there was a trial all the way around it. We were really done for the day. I just wanted to get back to my mothers house to rest.
In the background of the picture you can see the snow on Mt. Washington.
These picture are the same pond. If you look at the picture taken on top of the mountain looking down at the pond you will see a dirt road at the top left part of the pond. That is the road my mother lives on. The picture taken from the pond looking at the mountain/ hill is from the dirt road. That is what we climb up and down.
So by the time we made it to the dirt road we never saw a deer after walking over 5 hours. We walked at a fast passe back to our mother's house I really needed the bathroom because if I can help it I don't go in the woods. We stayed there for a little while. She made us waffles and coffee. Thanks mom your the best I was so hungry. I had a great time. I would like next time less climbing, and more deer.
