Mount Greylock… Part 2.

So we reached the top and found the tower.

It was a tower.

It was big.

Thinking it would be warmer,  I ran inside.

It was impressive, but still freezing cold and the sound of the wind whipping around the structure was eerie as hell.

There were stairs.

Lots and lots of stairs….

Which I climbed halfway, lost my breath, said to hell with it and let the husband reach the top alone.

The following are a few of the hundred shots he took that actually resembled something other than a giant blur. Photography is not his strong point.

Bascom Lodge, more on that later.

And before you say “Hey, stop picking on your husband those shots are great!”

He literally took 106 pictures and those are the result. The other 101 look like this one of me:

Jazz hands? Who can say…

Not the worst picture of me ever taken, but still.

Goodbye tower…

It’s been real.

Windy. It’s been real windy….

  1. In your husband’s defense, perhaps the camera was having trouble functioning at that high of an altitude. My only experience with a mountain was Pikes Peak, and I definitely didn’t do too well up there… especially running from the lightning strikes (Running at 14,110 feet is not recommended, even for professional stuntmen)…

    1. Sadly, he has the same problem at sea level. And as far as I’m concerned, running at any altitude isn’t recommended. Unless a bear is chasing me, then I might have to jog.
      *shudders at the thought of jogging*
