The New Picture Thread

^ cute pic Branded, sorry I missed seeing it earlier!

Weekends, long hours, late nights at work - all that came to a halt yesterday when I was invited for a birthday hike. We hit up Breakneck Ridge which has an elevation of about 1200 feet. The first park of the hike/ climb is tricky, strenuous for about 45 mins and you're scrambling on all 4's looking for grip to get higher and climb up, tricky rock parts and once you're high enough it gets a bit trickier, at least for me because I'm scared of heights haha ... well anyway, you'll see how steep some of it was, pictures don't do enough justice and half the time I was just holding on to rock to walk side ways cos I was shit scared. After we got to the first few checkpoints/ views, we walked through the trail, no more climbing, just downward and came across some ruins. We started at around 11 AM and wrapped up at like 5 PM, with a few breaks in between.

Beautiful pictures! I need to step up my game and do more outside activities like you are doing. That's pretty nice that there wasn't too much climbing though after you reached the first checkpoint.

Okay, that picture is scary to look at - I don't know how you took that picture without falling!
 
Thanks! Yeah man, go for it ^_^. It's a lot of fun when you're with at least one more person! The first checkpoint was nice to take a break at, but the climbing got intense after that and every checkpoint we hit I thought to myself "Ok this's it, right?" but noooooooo. And that's why it was a lotta fun. I would be happy with checkpoint 2, but because of the group you push on for more rewarding views or experiences. I would love to climb that again and take a different route maybe.

Keeping it classy Branded! Did you get to wrestle any drunks?

Adorable! :casca:

Makes me think that Gobs and I should have documented our costumes too - I was a skeleton and he was a giant taco. :badbone:

Sounds like Gobs alright. :ganishka:
inorite? :guts: It was a toss-up between that or a giant hot dog.

Anyway, I finally managed to snag some photos of the two of us in our respective costumes. Unfortunately, we didn't think to take a picture together, so I went and did a little post-production...



I'd say this is accurate.
