Climbed on a mild, partly cloudy day when the summit popped out of the clouds and I didn't want to pass up the opportunity of a brief window in the weather. The stream was really full because a foot of snow/ice was melting from Lake of the Clouds to the summit.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
--Oscar Wilde on Absinthe
