I've never had an untitled post. It was time.
Yesterday, I climbed to the summits of Stony Tower Hill and Lundeen Mountain, then went to the finish of the Voyageur 50 Mile. One person I talked to, after asking if I'd done what I said I was going to attempt and hearing that I had, said, "Don't tell me about it. I can just read about it on your blog."
It's a long story and I'm not going to tell it, or publish the photos (bad photos, as there were thousands of deer flies to swat while trying to take them). The short version, however, is: it was incredibly hard, dangerous and stupid... and that was before the thunderstorm or the bear. It took 4 hours to cover one mile.
I might be the first person to climb Lundeen. I'm certainly the only one in the past 50 years.
I wouldn't do it again!
