Climbing a Mountian

So I did it! I summited a mountain and did my first ridge walk all in one day. I went with my roommate and her boyfriend. It was a blast!! Talk about an incredible view!! I must admit though that there were some scary moments. But Jodi and Jorde talked me though. They were the best! There were also some pretty funny moments like when we ran into the chickens up near the top of the mountain. The thing well two things that I found incredible was the fact that I did it. I mean there were a few moments were I was considering how I could manage to get magically and instantly get down. But I kept pushing myself and Jorde and Jodi kept patiently encouraging me. I don't think I have ever talked to myself so much. It was pretty funny!! The second thing that I really enjoyed was just the beauty! The flowers in the alpine meadow were stunning, I had never seen such a collection neat flowers! It took us 6 1/2 hours and we summited the north peak and then walked to the south peak before descending! It was incredible. I can't wait for my next mountain.

The details:
Mount Indefatigable, with a height gain of 1000m, summit height of 2670m
