Summit Obsession

 Egad, I went back up there tonight, not, this time, for climbing per se; but because it looked like the combination of clouds and clearing skies might make for great sunset pictures. It was not to be, the clouds cleared out so there was very little to lend photographic character, the pics came out blah.

I did meet a fellow hiker, heading up the mountain. In his case, it might take a year or so:

I did (of course) do a little climbing…

Then I did a lot of waiting, while the sun sank low and the wind did its best to tear every living thing off the mountain. Man, it was cold up there! The wind served its purpose however, it dried the cliffs so I could climb a bit, and kept the blackflies at bay the entire time I was up there.
