Last week, my siblings and I hiked Mount Elbert, and I made a video about it. We used the GoPro 9 which worked out really well for video.
On the non-technical side of things, the hike was beautiful. We arrived at the north trailhead around 5:15am and it was packed. Somehow, we managed to squeeze our car in the lot, and get to the trail.
Once we were on the trail, we got to see the sun rise through the trees. It was pretty spectacular. After about 5:30 hours of hiking, we made it to the summit, and took a short break for lunch. By 11am the storm clouds were forming overhead, and the rain was starting to fall. We began our descent and within the first 15 minutes of hiking down, thunder began to clap. It was enough to motivate us down the hill, and we made it back to treeline in about 2:30 hours or so.
Once we were near tree line, the clouds parted and the sun came back. It was warm and sunny all the way back to the car. The clouds and the rain didn't return again until we were on our way home, and by that time the rain was a deluge. With all of that said, here's this week's video:
