"Why I don't
have any good shots of that climb"
In the driving
mist, I reached the summit, too tired and too numbed to wrestle
the camera from my pack......
provided some wonderful photo oportunities, but by summit time
everything was socked in and we got nothing above 8,000ft, or
on the trip back down, where we almost missed Timberline Lodge
itself in near-whiteout conditions.
I dropped my camera
over the north side of the mountain. No pictures from that climb!
