What is wrong with this picture??!!
2 miles and 1700' later, snow!
Finally continuous snow! 10' less snow than my prior attempts on Shasta!
The blues of the late evening
Racing to camp before sundown. I made it just as it got dark!
3am, many have a head start on us. Still, we sleep!
Headed out of camp at the leisurely time of 6am!
Just as sunrise hits!
Mikhail, and 50 tents of basecamp!
No . . . we were not alone!
