We started at 8 a.m. with an unattractive approach on the logging spur
We reached snow within an hour, though
My 76 year-old friend Gus, still trucking after all these years!
And the going got steeper
Beautiful ice towards the top
By 11, we lost our view of the valley
More spectacular ice
Once we broke out of the trees, the wind picked up. We didn’t stay long on the summit!
