Clouds + Mountains

Postby thedudeabides » Thu Aug 29, 2013 11:11 am

Cool photo!

Despite the weather destroying our plans for an Exum-Rdige summit we had some "cool weather" on the Grand Teton Last weekend.

“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper
