Temporary

Just as a keeper until I get the photos to a good home. Maybe I'll keep this album?

These are photos taken by me and Tom Bennett on Mt Shasta before his tragic death on the summit from HACE. Initially I felt ugly about even going through these photos, but I have had such a positive response from Tom's family and friends about them that I feel better about sharing them - and I think it's in Tom's spirit to celebrate what a wonderful time we had in the mountains together, despite the unpredictable tragic end.

I have also made a memorial album to Tom with photos of Tom on his various outings during the brief 3 months that he was in California.

Re: Thanks for posting...

and it was a great moment in time. A perfect two days of climbing, and Tom milked every minute of it.
