Sunset on Mount Sumbing

This was a wonderful trip and fun. with friends across the expanse of tobacco. streets are steep, dusty and the sun did not dampen our desire toward achieving the mountain Sumbing.

No pain, No gain .. there is something to be up there. that's why we did this trip. there is no beauty that we encountered on our home page. no stretch of beautiful clouds in front of our house. it can be found at the top Sumbing.

Rolling clouds, adorned yellowish light from the sun began to sink slowly. the cool air with the wind blowing a little stronger ..

This fun and it was wonderful. it feels like we repeat the trip, felt again touches soft winds, the cool breeze that blows, the warmth of the sun when his twilight. dense fog rolled and then fade, is the beauty of its own in the great outdoors, we can not find in our homes. :)

The Outdoor Adventure: Video: Fun In Chamonix

How's this for a fun – not to mention busy– day. The video below was shot in Chamonix, France, which is considered one of the truly great outdoor playgrounds in Europe, if not the world. In the video, climber Colin Haley manages to not only hit the slopes for some skiing, but also some ice climbing, and later in the day bouldering. Yep, that's right, everything you see Colin doing in the video was all done on the same day. Maybe it'll give you some inspiration on what to do this weekend! Enjoy!
