The Last Bit


This picture shows the top most point of Alagalla. The last bit of the climb was very interesting, as we had to squeeze through a crevice in the middle of the rocky outcrop shown above.

When i saw this rock, i saw a hedgehog lying on its tummy, looking to the left. :D Can you see the face?

Looks like a wonderful and pretty place to hike.

A Bulldog is crouching. It is always the winner to be on the top.

George said...

That is quite a rock formation on the top of Alagalla. I'm glad you made it all the way to the top.

Beautiful view.

Harumi said...

Wow.. such a tough climb.. but a thrilling and exciting one no doubt.

Looks like everyone's seeing an animal shape on the rocks. =D As for me it looks like something between a baby walrus and a bulldog. Rock formations are always mystifying.

An interesting destination for a very interesting journey. :D

The rock looks so beautiful, surrounded by all that grass. :)

Did you make it all of the way to the top, K???? I hope so.... That is a great picture of that huge rock.

My name is Elizabeth. "Betsy" is a nickname for Elizabeth. I guess my parents thought I looked more like a Betsy than an Elizabeth. ha
