During our recent three-day trek on the White Rim Trail, the climb up the Murphy Hogback was one of the highlights. The climb is fairly steep and requires 4×4 low to get to the top. In all, the climb took about 7 minutes. The video shows the last 4 minutes, the funnest and most crucial part of the climb. It was taken with a Go Pro camera mounted on the rear ladder of Alex Blasingame’s Lance 815 camper. The musical score, “Ecstasy of Gold,” is from one of my favorites films, “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.” I think you’ll agree that the angle, height of the camera, and the music, help produce a thrilling video. If you enjoyed this video, I’ll soon be publishing another of this climb, Part II, which was taken from the windshield of my truck.
