We made it to our destination and back in a round about way on both ways. Instead of the "promised" 14km, we accomplished our mission "and then some" in 18km. Our total elevation for the day was approximately 730 meters. I was surprised that with a lower meter count, you could still hit amazing heights.
A couple of things interfered with me getting great photos today. I didn't realize my camera setting was still set to a practice mode from Saturday's photography hike. When we reached the toe, the snow started, the wind picked up and it turned blizzard-like. For these reasons alone, I want to return to this place on a nicer day.
To give you somewhat of an idea of today, I picked out a few photos.
Thank you to Agent-X for the quick administration of Vitamin I and knee brace. The immediate attention worked and won't interfere with the next adventure. From one adventure to the next, how sweet!
