Listen to a cool song "on your way down" Reminds me of these birds, they just don't care! www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMVH_3EuFhw

.... you don't want to bump into them on your way down! The Red Arrows, of course!

Me and my son left the Bondowoso hotel at 1145pm and reached the Paltuding trailhead at 0115am. We then began our torturous 4 km hike up Mount Ijen at about 0130am which included several short stops here and there. You don’t need to be super fit to do this but I must admit I am getting old. Coupled by the fact that I climbed Bromo the day before and had a mild fever, I was worried to the point of contemplating quitting the climb altogether. There is another option to take a taxi up in the form of a double wheeled wheelbarrow pushed by the local miners. But I felt I would lose all my self-dignity if I do that. After removing the non-essentials from my back pack we climbed up the rather steep slopes in the dark where I was told that black panthers still roam in the vicinity. I reached the crater rim 1.5 hours later, surprisingly still in one piece.

 

Then we took the precarious and health-questionable trip down the crater lake. In the dark, on a narrow footpath shared by a gazillion people, all it take is a misstep and you'll be on your way down and beyond. Twisting your ankles is the least of your concern. We had to be careful --it took us about 45 minutes to descend from 2185m to 2045m . There was a steady flow of people going down, mixed with some early folks already making their way up. Once in a while the local miners with up to 100kg of sulfur would climb up the same path and all tourists made way for these guys.

 

Upon reaching the crater pit, the atmosphere then changed to one that is truly out of this world. I think the only other place you can observe this phenomenon is in Iceland. There was continuous (poisonous) sulphur gas flowing out of the crater floor that once in a while would engulf everyone and make us cry - quite unbearable. The gas masks helped a lot. Wouldn’t recommend this for asthmatics. And finally, the reason why we went through all this madness is that we get to witness the amazing blue fire from the burning sulphur. After taking a few shots, we climbed up the crater rim which in itself is another torturous 1 hour hike against the flow of downward traffic.

 

By the time we reached the crater rim, it was already time for sun rise. Luckily for us, the colours in the sky really popped that morning and the volcanic smoke didn’t cover the entire turquoise acidic lake. Together with the edelweiss shrub in the foreground I took several handheld shots overlooking the Ijen crater and the distant Mount Raung.I think I will visit East Java more in the future…

 

The sunrise on the summit of Mt. Whitney is always a beautiful thing to witness. It usually requires getting up around 2 in the morning and hiking with your headlamp for a while. But you get to see what you passed up on your way down, so it works out.

Auf dem Weg nach oben,

sei nett zu den Menschen.

Auf dem Weg nach unten

triffst du sie alle wieder.

-

On the way up,

Be nice to the people.

 

On your way down

You meet them all again.

Just leaving the Devil's Staircase back on the Tongariro Alpine Crossing trek in New Zealand, you get a grasp on what your next couple of hours are going to be about : Impersonating Frodo while climbing Mount, a.k.a Mount Ngauruhoe.

 

What it doesn't tell you at that point is that you will have to climb it twice in order to find the camera that you lost on your way down after climbing it for the first time, with another 15 kilometers to walk up and down after that, leaving Frodo behind.

  

Part 17

The sunlight continued to flicker like a naked candle flame in shifting air currents the rest of the day.

While I was scurrying around looking for good compositions a disembodied voice called out to me by name, “Have a good afternoon, Derek.”

Spinning around to see who said it, I saw no one except the guy and his dog, whom I had passed by earlier and who I also never told them my name, on the far shore. I decided to head in their direction to find out if there was someone else hiding amongst the rocks that I couldn't see. As I made my way back around the lake towards the meadowlands where they were camped the voice called out again, “How was your climb up?”

I recognized the voice, it was Jan from the previous day. I still couldn't see where she was, but I replied any way, “It was great! Where are you?”

“Up here.”

looking up I saw her sitting high up on a rocky ledge atop a small trickling waterfall (calling it a waterfall is being too generous, it was literally just a trickle and hardly flowing). So I climbed up to where she was.

“It's a beautiful lake.” she said, “I'm surprised I made it up, it took me three hours, but it was worth it, thank you for recommending it.”

We talked for a bit longer and during that time we started to wander towards the meadowlands together. Once we reached them she sat down again for break.

“I wish I was still young like you, but at least I'm still coming up here, I just have to take my time.”

A break in the clouds as warm light washed over us and the lake shimmered. She turned her face to the sun and smiled in it's comforting warmth. The sun had crept closer to the ridgeline as the day had grown old.

“It going to be night soon and I should be getting back to my camp before sunset.” She said, then added, “ Stop by on your way down.” After a short hug she turn towards the meadows and began hiking back to her camp on the hill overlooking Muriel Lake.

I lingered in the meadows for awhile before heading back to my camp. While here I took a few photos of the glittering light. The wind had died and the reflections had returned. The clouds began to disperse and shrink and what chance of rain there seemed to have been vanished with the clouds.

I headed back to my camp and reached my tent as the sun finally reached the ridgeline and set behind the towering peaks. The light that was left set Muriel Peak ablaze and the lake in the turbulence of the fire lost its reflections yet again but still retained its ability to scatter color. The rippling water became a dance of color; red, pink, blue, black, white and orange.

I spent the rest of that sunset trying to photograph the flaming peaks with a large snow patch in the foreground but none of those compositions turned out in a way that I liked. It wasn't long before the light faded completely and the sun at last finished her journey across the wide sky as she sunk beneath the unseen western horizon.

As night closed in and stars began to peak out I climbed into my tent for the night. I would much rather have slept out side beneath the wide sky but I was lazy and didn't feel like taking my tent down. The only reason I had set it up was because it look as though it might rain, but now the sky was clear. There were no other spots nearby that I knew of that were flat and rock free for camping, and the meadow was too far away to hike to in the dark and was also home to mosquitoes. So my tent was where I slept.

I awoke early, earlier than normal. I peaked my head out of my tent's door and saw thin wispy clouds glowing faintly pink with the still far off dawn. So I quickly got dressed and headed out side with my camera. I propped it up with a rock in place of a tripod and took a photo looking back at my tent.

Craziest road I've driven yet. Hwy 32 south from Cosby, TN. 7 miles til it ends then you turn and come back. Takes about half an hour each way. Narrow. Many many hairpin turns. The white line on each side isn't the edge of the road, its the edge of the edge. Step over it and call the coroner on your way down. Of course you can't see the lines on much of the road due to the leaves. No traffic up there to blow them away. I passed a park ranger and that's it. No one else. Found out after the fact that rangers are advising people not to go down it if they didn't need to.

Where do we go, nobody knows

Don't ever say you're on your way down, when..

God gave you style and gave you grace

And put a smile upon your face

 

"God put a smile upon your face" - Coldplay

Fire's a popping! I bet the chief's son ran the siren on ride-alongs. Fire is the one event that strikes fear into Gold Hillsters. You can probably see that from the state of housing up there. Recently, a fire made a run toward Gold Hill up the area to the south, along side our route up. One touch and Gold Hill would be gone. Poof! The fire scar is visible from Dixon by the cemetery. I bet the Gold Hillsters are careful with smoking!

 

After our return from the cemetery on Dixon we spun around the junction of Grove, Gold Run and Main Streets in Gold Hill where eDDie parked and chatted someone up. There, I could expand my collection of mountaineering wagons. I decide upon another shot of the old Ford, American La France conversion fire wagon on Main Street in old Gold Hill. I don't know how many pictures of this have been taken?

 

The rain hit me on four earlier trips up at Gold Hill in the summer. The last rain day was early June when we were on our way walking and poking through Gold Hill, the mining community on the America's Historic Registry. Today bore no portent of rain and changing aspen are creating Gold Hill-sides.

 

Gold Hill is a remnant of the oldest Colorado mining days (1859) and I caught sight of this shot that most illustrates this fanciful mountain life. To say Gold Hill tops a mountain ridge is accurate with the road east and west rise slightly while Lickskillet, north, and Gold Run, south to Boulder, drop off the sides of the ridge. In fact, Lickskillet Gulch was navigable in a car. Never in March. As Wiki puts it: Gold Hill is accessible from nearby Left Hand Canyon Road via Lick Skillet Road, the steepest county road in the United States. It IS safe to descend in first gear IF you have good brakes. Be very careful on your way down but when you get to Lefthand Canyon in the valley, you need extra caution, As much as half the road is dirt and temporary to provide access after the floods. It is about ready for paving. Yet again, I have to return to make a another stab at covering Gold Hill. I have no idea how much work it would take.

 

Gold Hill has lasted for decades through the original gold boom, the second gold boom, the silver boom and its 1893 demonetization and finally the return to reliance on gold and tungsten mining and processing. It has never completely died and is not accurately, a ghost town. It's history of transportation was a bit tortured considering one route was Lickskillet. I assume most transportation was to and from the Gold Hill Railway Station when the Switzerland Trail rails were laid west on its way to Ward. The steep sides of the canyon originally meant the road up from Boulder had to ascend the canyon. Old Gold Hill still lives on in this century-old mining camp. The narrow gauge route was never built from old Hill Station (see the map). The town continued to cling to the foothills above Boulder.

A later night than usual for me. Nard, Jo and I went out for sushi and Nard and I ended up hanging out until 9.

 

We don't get to see each other as much anymore, life tends to get in the way, so it's great to have the opportunity to catch up with a friend. Even if it leaves less time for responsibilities.

 

Anyway, just a simple shot for today.

 

Hope everyone has had a good day.

She's Only Happy In The Sun" by Ben Harper ...<3

  

"I know you may not want to see me

On your way down from the clouds

Would you hear me if I told you

That my heart is with you now

 

She's only happy in the sun

She's only happy in the sun

 

Did you find what you were after?

The pain and the laughter brought you to your knees

But if the sun sets you free, sets you free

You'll be free indeed, Indeed

...

Every time I hear you laughing, I hear you laughing

It makes me cry

Like the story of life, of your life

Is hello, goodbye

...

Shes only happy in the sun........"

where do we go, nobody knows

don't ever say you're on your way down, well

god gave you style and gave you grace

and put a smile upon your face

I wonder why when you say goodbye

beautiful colours paint the sky.

Shades of orange, yellow and pink too

all come out because of you.

And although I hate to see you go,

I really do enjoy the show.

I've seen you leave so many times

and still it's a favourite sight of mine.

There'll be no sadness, be no sorrow

because my sun, you'll come out tomorrow.

I won't feel hurt, I'll feel no pain

because on your way down, your colours will reign.

The highest part of the Great Wall. Taking a better shot, is not difficult but on a very crowded narrow place, it becomes a challenge.

 

My second visit to this wall. The first one was in the mid 90s where there were no cable cars yet to bring you up. We had to climb on foot and reaching the top is in itself an achievement for non-trekkers like me. A certificate saying that "I have successfully climbed the Great Wall of China" is being given by the organizers and I can well remember that I treasured it in a while and have actually framed and hanged it in my bedroom. Well, nothing I guess is really spectacular up above there, except for the real stories and the horrors that went behind the building of a stretch of 4,000+ mile walls are the real gems that made it claim the title as one of the 7 Wonders of the World. One has to know the history of this wall to be able to appreciate it better. I would admit that my first climb, was not as much as meaningful as I had with this one.

I was actually looking up, all the way up, since i had a tower which was 90 meters high to climb. Going up these stairs was really bad, i was nearly dead when i got up to the top, but coming down was even worst, the space is really narrow and very steep but you only feel it on your way down. The stairs take you up to the highest tower of La Sagrada Família (Catalan name) or La Sagrada Familia (Spanish name) in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, Antoni Gaudí's masterwork. You can, of course, pay 2 euros and reach the top by elevator but you wont have half of the fun!

Stuck in the middle of nowhere and without transport you'd be glad of a bus ride back to civilisation, sadly though this rural Derbyshire bus stop is a ghost one. The notice board is displaying a sign saying that there are currently no buses on this route and nearest bus route is down in Hathersage. Not far in a car but to walk it you'd be hoping it didn't snow again on your way down the hill.
