So tall, silent against the sky
Up through the clouds where eagles fly
Wind and rain beat down on one so strong
They cut but never change, what stood so long
We used snowshoes to climb a mountain, got to the top, and stood....
What you don't see are the rolling clouds in the background... it was time to get down and get down fast. The problem with being at the top of the mountain is that it is not a safe place in a raging snowstorm in a dark night. It was dusk, and the clouds were coming.
We got to the trailhead as the flurries hit us and darkness descended.
The weekend is here. Best to steal a few hours to the MBA, but then get down from the top before it compromises other commitments.
