Got Lightninged Off Cannon Retreated to Summit of Oberlin for Safety  Sucess!

Drove up Going to the Sun during one of the worst storms of the summer. Rain like I've never seen pounded the windshield on the way up. Arrived at Logan's Pass with sun shining down on us. We were in the eye of the storm! A hole in the clouds encircled Hidden Lake and the Pass from above. I had planned to take a coworker up Cannon but lightning scared him off soon after we left the trail so I kept going. Higher and higher. Snow started to fall around me (First time seeing snow fall since I was a baby). Starting to second guess whether I should push on or not, lightning struck once more. This time, too close for comfort. I turned around and ran up Oberlin as I had heard it's the easiest beginner mountain. Alas, I, the Wheelbarrow, won't let poor weather ruin an otherwise perfectly good day in GNP hahaha

Fabulous Views  Sucess!

Great views for not too much work. Winds were vicious the day I went and I nearly got frostbite every time I took off gloves for a picture, but I kept taking more pictures. Go past the summit on an arm out to "Easter Island" for a slightly more challenging day and more rewarding. I will have a trip report up soon if you want the details.

Hangover Hill  Sucess!

Summer 2012

Had big plans to Climb GTTS and Matahpi, but had an even BIGGER night! Still wanting to climb, just not feeling so hot, Colin and I headed for Oberlin. What a great alternative! Great, easy day! The beer we hid in a snowbank on the way up was very rewarding on the way down!
