We were ice climbing on the lower section of the mountain during the day. The wind was blowing so hard I was blown to the ground twice. While we were driving out we stopped to check out the trees. Even miles from where we were the tops of the trees must have been moving 15 feet. We saw smaller trees that had blown down in the road while we were climbing. I think this was the works wind I have been in.
"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
