Parry Peak

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.
