Mt. Seymour Summit Ridge – Google Earth

Yesterday (Sunday) we hiked to the top of Mt. Seymour. The image is from Google Earth, and the blue track is data plotted from my GPS. No photos – my camera is in Durban.

I grew up in the east. There, the common advice to someone who was lost was to follow water. Creeks flow into rivers and rivers lead to civilization. On these mile-high rugged hills following water when lost has cost lives. Here, the advice is to stay put, or to go up. The ridge is broad, but the flanks are all very steep and dangerous.

The only snow we saw was high up and in the shadows. Up on the mountain, the weather can change from a hot sunny day to a blizzard in a few moments – even in summer. I’ve seen that happen on Seymour.

Yesterday the weather was idea for a ramble on the summit ridge of Mt. Seymour.
