Green Butte Ridge
Winds got worse in freezing temperatures as the day went on and most parties turned around at the base of Misery Hill, but I was happy to squeak out a successful summit (with my frozen burrito lunch).

There weren't any clouds to be seen... everything in the sky here is wind blown snow. This was near the top of Green Butte Ridge on Mount Shasta at 12,400 feet. Photo of me here has been taken by my esteemed partner ElGreco in April 2012.

JoelSkokAre those 'Pearl Globs"?

Voted 10/10

I've heard of them on higher Mexican volcanos but didn't think they formed north of the tropics even at the upper echelons of our highest peaks. Powerful image, glad you took the time to photograph the scene. It is quite fancy. 10/10

First time I've heard that term- but I suppose so. It was excessively cold and windy that weekend, and this was just below 13000 feet. The summit up higher was completely encrusted top to bottom, first time I'd seen it like that, though if you go in early spring it isn't unusual to see a bit of these features. I'd seen photos of them on Mount Hood before and was happy to see the same on Shasta.
