Vapor Visuals: Camelback Mountain

Hey there vape fans, we’re back this week for another vaping adventure! This week I woke up extra early and hiked Camelback Mountain, located in the middle of Phoenix. Camelback is a very popular hiking destination for anyone visiting Arizona due to its location and relatively easy hiking trails. Now popularity alone wasn’t my reason to scale this mountain at 5 in the morning, though when I came down I was glad I got there early since parking was crazy. The true reason for my early morning adventure was to capture the sun rise. One things for sure, Arizona truly does have spectacular sunrises and sunsets. However, I did forget my eGo One at home, despite putting it next to my keys the night before, so I wasn’t able to vape any delicious Admiral Berry Crunch when I got to the top and waited for the sun. Despite not having my vape on me, this really turned out to be a great trip and may inspire me to get up early everyday!  So, without further delay, here is a map to the trailhead and away we go!

After arriving to the base of the mountain, I through on all my gear, turned my headlamp on climbed the 1.3 mile hike to the top.

So after leaving my house around 4 am, I plugged the location to Camelback into GPS and I was set!

But I did meet about 5 other individuals on my way to the top.

It was an extremly peace full hike, due mostly to the fact that the majority of people were still fast asleep.

Once I reached the top, I relized that I was't in a great spot to catch the sun, so I had to backtrack a bit and managed to catch this guy enjoying an early morning jump

Had a little fun with Photoshop on this one. It's what I think a morning on Arrakis would look like :)

From this point on, I just want you to enjoy as we watch the sunrise, I hope you all enjoy, and I'll see you at the end!

    Beautiful shots, photography is a hobby of mine.. Love it. Shame you forgot your vape equipment.

    Beautiful! I am fortunate in the fact that I can see the sun and moon rise from the window in my bathroom. I even paid for new, clear Windows just for the view. Worth every penny. Those were stunning photographs, thank you for sharing them. ?
