Walking On Clouds

On Saturday I climbed Mount Warning, it took 5 hours and 15minutes and was absolutely exhausting. I wasn't able to take many photos as I was a woman on a mission. This first photo shows how much cloud was covering the Mountain, well you can't actually even see the top of the mountain.

  I have wanted to climb this Mountain for so long but if we get any heavy rain the track gets closed. So what happens when we turn up, yes that's right it starts raining. The whole 5 hours we were climbing it was raining.
 The first 1/3 of the walk was hell and I didn't think that I could do it.  After that the climb seemed to get easier of maybe I started to get used to it.

 You can see in these shots how beautiful and lush the climb was in places. You can also see the clouds that we were walking through.
 I was so happy to make it to half way and knew if I had come this far that I was not turning back. Not long after this my calf muscles started cramping quite badly and we had to sit down and rest.
This is at the top it was a total white out and you couldn't see anything. We were drenched and exhausted but so proud of our selves. All we need to do now is climb back down.
It is now 4 days after the climb and my legs are still sore.
Even though I am in pain it was so worth it.

Wow! Impressive. Our bodies need to adapt to such demands when we aren't used to them, but it's always worthwhile to push ourselves. We create great memories that way. Plus, you impress your blogger-friends!

Wow! What an incredible accomplishment! I don't think I would have made it to the top! LOL! The hike up there looks so beautiful and I am sure the pictures don't do it justice!
