Mount Lady Washington – July 28, 2018

This solo hike by Scott began at 10 p.m.  It was about a 12-mile out and back hike with a little less than 4,000′ elevation gain (hence, the reason this one was a solo!).  He packed some snacks, his tripod, and camera gear and off into the dark night he went.  After three hours of uphill climbing, he found the place where he would quietly gaze at the wonder of the night sky and just snap away.

If you you look closely st the picture below, you can see the tandem rock climbers.  Zoom in and look for the headlights.
