Heavy – 30 Days of Photos Day 11

I went hiking in Vermont 2 weeks ago and whenever I do, I always wonder what mountains weigh, because they look like they’d be quite heavy.

Ok, full disclosure: I never wonder that. It was just an excuse to include a hiking pic:

  • I love hiking too. Where in Vermont is this?

  • Danielle Batog

    Any excuse would do….it is beautiful….we don’t have mountains here…unless you consider sand dunes mountains.

  • They do have beautiful mountains. We’ve traveled in Vermont four times. When the kids were little they loved the slides that the ski resorts had up for the summer.

  • I, too love hiking but have never had the pleasure of going to Vermont. While it is a bit of a stretch for today’s prompt…those rocks do look heavy.

  • Great pic Mike, no matter the excuse.

  • MikeWJ

    Well, that’s pretty enough, Mike. Hope you got some syrup while you were there, too, although too much syrup can make you heavy.

    I was excited when I read your post, because I do wonder what mountains weigh. I live in the foothills of the Rockies, and think about it almost daily, especially on my drive to work.

  • While I wouldn’t hesitate to go stalking with you, I don’t have the shoes for that kind of hiking. It looks pretty though but your photo is the closest I ever want to get to that place.

    I like this picture. Maybe you can feel how heavy it is standing with your arms. No? Sorry!

  • It looks lovely, Mike! What a beautiful place.. And I’m doubly glad you didn’t fall down the mountain, it looks like a long way down.

  • Stunnnning!! I love Vermont!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ba-HAHAAHHAA!!!! Okay, that was funny. And a very cool pic.

  • HA HA HA HA HA YOU GOT ME THERE! So funny… so I am not the ONLY one to sneak around rules and such! I would LOVE to hike in a place as beautiful as that!

  • My first thought when I saw this was, “Wow, that’s some heavy fog.” You didn’t to make an excuse because some of us are right on top of things, y’know? ::snort::

    heavy and beautiful!

  • Paula Wooters

    Feel free to use a hiking pic any day, Cheesy Mike. That’s one heavy mountain!

  • This is Camel’s Hump. About 20 minutes south of Burlington.

  • They are mountains to ants, so why not?

  • Yep, I remember those. It’s a fun way to re-purpose the mountain when there’s no snow.

  • It’s a beautiful state from every angle, but when you get onto the smaller roads, it becomes gorgeous.

    That’s a very very accurate reading your goat has there 🙂

  • Thanks, Dufe!

  • 🙂

  • I hate that I’ve never seen the Rockies. And I was so close a few times. It’s pathetic. In fact, I think the elevation of Camel’s Hump (4083ft) is around Colorado’s normal elevation, right? Your foothills are probably taller than it too.

  • It was pretty cold too, and I know how you are about that sort of thing.

  • hahaha

  • Vermont is the shit!

  • The weight of a mountain really depends on the density of the rock, the soil type and the degree of compaction. Oh, crap, I am such a nerd.

  • Me too. Vermont is beautiful in the fall, and the storm fog made everything very dramatic. If it was sunny it would have been the same old boring “you can see for miles” view. Fog shakes things up a bit.

  • Thank you! Gotta love the panorama feature!

  • Oh Honey, just being around you would warm me up a few degrees!

  • ahahaa…takes one to know one!

  • You know, I didn’t even think of using ‘heavy fog’. Good one.
