As our team descended the southwest slope of Buckner Mountain, clouds started moving in. Soon after arriving at Horseshoe Basin I took this photo. At the time this photo was taken, everything above ~8000' elevation was covered by thick clouds.
Gimpilator descends into Horseshoe Basin in this photo, shortly after splitting off from Dennis and Eric. Gimpilator and I each had full schedules the following day, so Dennis and Eric said it was OK for the two of us to continue towards camp in an effort to save time and daylight for the long journey that awaited us heading back to the car.
