58 Summits in 58 Seconds

Postby scrambling » Tue Dec 04, 2012 9:21 am

It took me 117 days to visit all of them this summer...now you can see them all in only 58 seconds in this slideshow.

I also think it needs a tune (and faster)!!

Great job! :)

P.S. I posted this on my Facebook page and two people have already shared it on their walls. It should get a lot of views! :)
