Duex Lerandonneurs dans la "Fiery Furnace"





Julian and Gwenda made it safely to Moab yesterday, and today, Julian and I went though the Fiery Furnace. Julian and I weren't the oldest hikers, nor were we the youngest. But Julian easily came the farthest to do the hike. I probably came the shortest distance. In any case, we both made it out alive. There were some tight spots, as you can see in the last photo. Julian took a picture of me as I was negotiating a narrow spot. This was one of the more difficult spots on the walk. There were spots that required a little climbing, some jumping and scrambling. As Nancy said a few posts ago, it would have been much easier ten years ago and ten years from now I'm sure I won't be able to do it. I took the first two shots and Julian took the last three....and click on em' to enlarge em' kids.

Doug,

Looks like you can easily pack on another 30 - 40 pounds before you won't fit. I will help you in that effort in August. When are you leaving for Leran?
