Steady climbs, more exposed ridge walking. Weather was good over Parry Peak and at 13,300 something, I’m glad it was. This is the kind of terrain where you really want a partner; steep slopes and rocky ground. Absolutely beautiful. There’s a point where you just have to stop taking photos since there is no way film could capture such stunning scenes. Got caught up high with a huge storm rolling in – no way to get down the steep scree around me so I jogged along until the trail dropped into a valley. These daily thunderstorms get me so nervous. I’m the highest thing on the ridge; the only plant life is a few inches tall. Not much you can do except cross your fingers and think non-metallic thoughts.
