But first - visiting Wilson Peak, one of the three Wilson Group 14ers, from the north.
A large photo at home. .. I was hoping to take a shot from the same position, but could not get to it.
The cover of the Summer/Fall 2018 issue - a shot on the Via Ferrata.
OK, the Via Ferrata TH, at the east end of the Telluride box canyon.
A pan to the left.
Panoramic - Telluride at distant end of the valley.
Close to the car, pass over the creek here and immediately ascend right on a steep trail.
After an extended easy traverse, the first cable coming into view ahead.
Looks pretty secure - but ya never know! :)
Crossing under old cables here related to mining.
View to rear - with cars at TH at switchback turn.
Cables occur intermittently, depending on exposure.
Note the screwed-in hardware - used for either hand or foot holds.
With a locking biner on each side of the cable bolt, you remain connected as you pass.
View to rear.
Telephoto - notice a couple that will catch up soon.
A place to catch your breath and steel your nerves, as the crux is just around the corner - "The Main Event."
