Today I climbed Twin and Indian Head Mountains. Below are the videos I uploaded to YouTube. I keep splitting Twin Mountain into “west” and “east” peaks, but they’re really north and south of each other. And now that I think about it, I’m not even sure that I didn’t mix the two up. I have no sense of direction, by the way. That’s why I carry a map and a compass when I go to the bathroom at home.
I wouldn’t recommend thinking about a guy with no sense of direction going hiking in the wilderness alone in the winter – especially not on mountains without trails. That’s pretty much tantamount to thinking about Cthulhu and the Old Ones: not good for the psyche.
You can also check out some of the pics on my facebook album, if you like. I’d say go view the trip over at EveryTrail, but for some reason my last couple of hikes haven’t uploaded.
Overall, it was a great day. The weather report said that it would be overcast and probably snowing, but the sky was actually pretty clear. It was about 27 degrees outside when I got back to the car, so it was probably a few degrees cooler at the summits.
The whole trip was just under 7 miles. The two peaks of Twin Mountain only count as one mountain. Twin and Indian head are numbers 11 and 12; I have 23 left to go before March 22d.
