In usual carpe-the-heck-out-of-the-beautiful-diem fashion, we decided to spend the entire day climbing at Pilot Mountain. The mountain was crawling with other hikers, climbers, families, and dog walkers. Everyone was in good spirits, and I especially enjoyed the young grade-schoolers pointing and exclaiming in awe, eyes wide with astonishment, at the climbers dangling from their harnesses 30 feet in the air.

Towards the end of the day, we met Pete, a freelance videographer, who was shooting a promo video for the county, and got some shots of our last climbs after signing release forms and a pleasant conversation about his work, kids, and love of the outdoors.

Some glimpses:
