Went to Black Mountain on Friday and Saturday for A-ron and Buck's annual birthday bash. I could only camp Friday night, which means I missed the big party on Saturday night, but I got lots of good pics and had a BLAST climbing the two days I was there. Recently I purchased a fisheye lens and I played around with it a lot on this trip. Some results were better than others. Here are some photos for your enjoyment.

  1. Hi, it's a very great blog.
    I could tell how much efforts you've taken on it.
    Keep doing!

  2. Nice shots Ike. Good to meet up with you Saturday. The offer still stands anytime you want to come back to Black Mountain, we will give you the full tour. I put up another nice shot of you further up that line, "vegan shoveler." Any info from Arizona peeps about the problem?

  3. Thanks OTGE and Bmb. As for word back from the AZ guys, that's a no, but I can give one of 'em a call to see what they recall.
