Oh wait. I was there.

Ahem ... thus, my "eye candy" comment on this trip report. :wink: I might be married 28 years, but I'm not dead to recognizing a good looking man when I seem one. :mrgreen:
As if none of us have ever come back with a cool, quasi-epic story instead of being victim to tragic rockfall, a fatal stumble, a heart attack, an embolism, a lightning strike, a bear attack, collapsing cornice, some psycho with an axe, a falling tree, carbon monoxide, even falling asleep at the wheel getting to a mountain. If you can't accept the fact that sometimes "s**t happens", then you live with the illusion that your epic genius and profound wilderness intelligence has put you in total and complete control of yourself, your partners, and the mountain. How mystified you'll be when "s**t happens" to you! - FM

Yup. Same guys. We wouldn't have posted if we didn't want people to look although I'm sure some were offended.

Maybe I should make a trip to climb in Colorado!

More pictures! It helps me not feel like crying when I look out the window and see the snow melting. :)
