Flowers covered in ice below, getting cold




I little dicey above and below.


Me on the summit below


Climbed from the trial head up through beautiful up-sloping land with large grasses and some pines.

followed the trail upwards to a refuge where we got some tea and food before going for the summit.


The trail became steeper and far more rocky.  There have been quite a few deaths on this mountain lately.  Ok so it got real step and I thought about turing back back with Abraham’s guidance we pushed forward and we reached the summit in a windy (60 mph) and snowy afternoon.
