One of the fellows at BootsnAll sent me some photographs taken by a friend.
I have included one of his images this week because it was the shot I couldn’t take. My camera stopped working and, at 19,000+ feet, I did not possess the cognitive resources to render the simple fix it until we entered the lower, oxygen rich, altitudes on our way down the mountain.

This photo was taken at the top of the trail from Crater Camp to the summit ridge.
Pictured is Crater Camp (tents in lower center), a snow patch with a trail crossing vertically and the Furtwrangler Glacier. When I stood in this spot three years ago, there was no break in the glacier, just a solid wall of ice.
