Timelapse Video on Cascade Mountain

Here’s a timelapse video I shot on Saturday, September 30 on Cascade Mountain. The video shows what the summit looks like on a day when 550 people hike the mountain.

    I really enjoyed that video never been on that one. I wish more info was out there letting folks know more about the climbs. I can’t be near edges for example vertigo sets in but I can climb some but give up on most not knowing trail and what to expect. I went up Panther mountain this fall amazing loved it alot beautiful looking out perfect due to not being near edges to see and enjoy views. Thanks for sharing that video !

    Nice job by videographer. It is great to see people enjoying the great outdoors.

  3. Really great video! I find many people are aggravated that the mountain they climbed is too crowded – as if it should be empty so that they can enjoy it. They climbed that mountain and became part of the overcrowding. I personally LOVE the fact that people are getting off of the couch and enjoying the outdoors. If Cascade is too crowded, there are 6 million acres in the Adirondack Park – I encourage all of the complainers to explore some more. I’ve been on many fantastic hikes in the ADK where I didn’t see another person. If it’s high peak adventures you crave in solitude, go hike Allen or Skylight, Or Haystack or any of the other more strenuous hikes – you’ll see far fewer people along the way and enjoy the quiet summit…

    Looks like time square! Sadly, I go to the mountains to get away from the masses and therefore never hike on the weekends.
    Thanks for exposing the over exposure Mike! 🙂
