A Scout and a Rover look out to the horizon and see the sun setting in the west and a storm coming in from the south. We’re 5 kms. out from our base camp at 5,250 feet. Mother nature is always in charge out here.

To paraphrase Ed Viesturs: Achieving your objective is optional; Getting home is mandatory.

The mountains aren’t going anywhere….we’ll come back another day. Time to head home…
