|Triumphant summitteer. Note the promotional shirt. |
And the fetching hat.

|I agree, it is only vaguely shaped like a camel...|

I didn't have any hands free to take photos.

The trail is an excellent one for those who like a good hike but don't have too much time, because only takes about an hour each way. It was wonderful to get out - long time no hike. However, this is just me. On the summit we met a local young man who climbs it two or three times a week, and added 'I like to run down'. He considers that perfectly normal. As an example of 'hard core' he told us of an old man who climbs it three times a day.
