Upon our return from Fremont Peak I scouted the area around camp for a sunset vantage, and settled on scampering up a large glacial erratic where Ellingwood Peak was reflected in a tarn. With my my tripod set up, I got comfortable with a good book and a snort of Jack Daniels, and hoped for some evening alpenglow. The leaden sky did not offer much promise.
Around 8:00 PM Jeff called up from camp, ”It’s not going to happen, big guy.”
I looked out to the west. Right on the horizon was a thin line, a paler shade of grey than the blanket of dark storm clouds.
"You’re probably right, but I’ll hang out a bit longer, just in case."
Ten minutes later a faint glow struck Ellingwood and the surrounding peaks.
Within 60 seconds it was a stunning fire red.
A minute later the game was over.
