Fun weekend

With no plans had a great weekend.
Solo packraft on Eagle river on saturday. Hiked to Glacier lake, paddled across then tooled around the moraine a bit.

Then headed up to Hatchers with Billy and Yvonne to try lower spire again.
We got most of the way up but then hunkered down for about 3 hrs while lightening blasted around us and rain soaked us. Eventually we tried going up more but I got freaked out by numerous nearby strikes and having an ice axe on my back. We made 3 double rope raps to get down to the glacier.

Amazing pictures. The ones where you guys are huddling beneath boulders are especially harrowing. I remember doing the same thing at 13,000 feet in a lightning storm in Utah. Not fun.
