The longest, hardest, and highest climb I’ve done yet. And, of course, the most memorable! I’ve realized I’m addicted to climbing. I crave that exhilaration. I constantly think about the unique features of every mountain I’ve been on. When I’m not out there, I’m almost sad about it. At least I have these shots and prominent memories to constantly think about. Camp Schurman base camp on Mt Rainier – a busy place in late July as many climb teams prepare to make their summit bid. Storm clouds separate just in time for a memorable sunset.
