abort 2x

Feeling antsy - Plan B went into action, to try to climb Killiak in Eagle River with JT and his friend Jennifer. Hiked in to above the river at the enterance to Icicle creek Saturday night to the most stunning campsite you could ask for.







Views of Organ, Compass Butte and Flute were jaw dropping.. in a taunting sort of way.


I was feeling pretty crappy on the hike in.. J's cold seemed to pass my outer defenses. The early start to a huge day confirmed that I am indeed fighting a cold again. Turned around after like 45 minutes heading up the hunter's trail zapped for energy. Some weekends just don't work out like you hope for. Had a nice hike out the valley in gorgeous weather and went home to bed. The obsession continues.

Wow Eric, way to turn around and go for it again, serious bummer you're still not feeling well. Just bag it for a few days and let your body recover, the Captain WILL ride again, no question!

It was good to see you out there. I hope you are all healed up and are back out and about.
