With the past Blanca incident fresh on our mind we had to climb something. Maybe two somethings?

We pulled into Colorado on Friday what a blue bird day! But i knew the weather was not going to hold up .

Now serveral folks went over to oxford, I however was not really liking the weather situation. With that said I did not make the traverse and i am glad i did not. By the time we got down there was thunder and heavy rain.

Even as the weather continued to worsen people just kept coming up. I would not want to be coming down in that rain/snow.

Just a quick report, and since I did not get Oxford I have a reason to go back! Damn the luck.
