Fantastic video: Three hikes up Track Rock Gap
This is one of several videos by Brady Brandwood, which I will be forwarding to POOF subscribers. For those you, who have not been able to hike up the slopes of Buzzard Roost Mountain, this professional film maker provides extraordinary wintertime views. A personal message to Brady. You were absolutely insane to hike up the slopes alone and to crawl into those old tombs and volcanic caves without anybody standing guard outside. The second time that I went to Track Rock ruins alone, I poked my head into an old tomb and was face to face with a REALLY angry Mama Bear and nursing cub. Fortunately, she was afraid of my three herd dogs. Readers, please don’t try that experiment at home alone. It is equivalent to driving a car into a tornado!
