The last shot before climbing to the summit. My hands were too cold and I was too lazy to get the camera out again.
There is a story in there somewhere.
Thank You in advance to Air New Zealand, the Canadian Nurse Brigade, the Carolinian Contingent, Pennsylvania Paparazzo, UK 1.0 and 2.0, Apollo and (last but only to denote his importance) the Peruvian Headbanger. Y’all know who you are.
Because of poor planning—well really the inability to plan ahead this weekend—I picked up the backpack and headed out to Granite Mountain again. And it was a great morning. First, a little bit about that backpack because I know that’s what you are really interested in.
