OK, so not really a massacre. But the day did not start well for our group and fortunately things got better with enough daylight for a bail-out peak. Mount Hyak fit the bill, despite low clouds obstructing any views from the mountain. Easy snowshoe.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
