Mount Thompson

08/29/2009. In an attempt to summit Thompson Peak (pictured), we decided to make this 9,000 ft unnamed lake our final destination. Thompson will be summited another day (sigh). Enjoy!

Attempt?

Great view of Thompson. What happened? Did you run into bad weather?

Re: Attempt?

No, weather was actually nice until late that evening (lightning/thunder, rain all night long). Actually, the g-friend was feeling pretty bad from the altitude, so I opted to make the 9,000 ft lake our destination for th eday. Add to that the fact it was already 2:30/3:00 at this point and going further would've potentially put us hiking back in the dark. It was a great oppurtunity to scope out the terrain for when I do summit.

Cheers,
Kris
