Good timing.

Great shot. I was actually on the mountain at that exact time you were flying over. I was going through crevasse rescue practice at our basecamp at Ingrahm Flats. Most flights that went anywhere near the mountain caused large rock falls due to the extremely warm temps.

Re: Good timing.

Yeah, it was unusually hot when I was there in mid-to-late July (in the mid-90s). I was visiting my older half-brother, who works at Microsoft. It kind of cooled down one week later.
