seat with a view

  • I had my sight on this summit in 2008. I made a visit in April 2009, but lack of planning and the realization that April wasn’t the ideal climbing season stopped me. Walking the Five Lakes area, shrouded in fog, I didn’t even try given the difficulty in just trying to reach there with no foresight given to the travel there.

    Four years later, passing it by, I get a clear picture of what the April conditions are like and gain an equally clear appreciation of how ill-equipped I was back then.

    The view at the top was nice, but I do enjoy seeing this massive peak from a distance, comfortably sitting in a seat traveling 200 mph, snacking on a box of Crunky.
