Was there a forest fire in the background? You guys are nuts highballing like that. Ouch. Hurts just to look.

No forest fire, just haze. It was a bit sketchy, you have to be really careful (have the crawling technique down). We wanted to save time since clouds were approaching.

Thanks for noticing this pic! On that stretch I was more like crawling along than walking. I started walking only when the terrain flattened significantly.
