Re: nice

@ Josh man:

Curious to know WHY you chose to scramble up
Aasgard Pass during THAT particular time of the year ? Were you testing your stamina and
determination on steep ice ?

Re: nice

I had been cooped up inside for far too long with school work and such. Finally Matt Lemke offered a trip to climb Dragontail Peak. I've already climbed it by this point but loved the idea of seeing the Enchantments under fresh snow. An escape to taste winter is what I needed.

Re: nice

I've been escaping from life all my life,
and it finally caught up to me when I got
married and moved to central Arizona.

Call me selfish, but I still long for the ultimate ESCAPE !

Nice indeed

I know that spot very well and your shot and composition with Colchuck in the background makes it special.

Re: Nice indeed

Thanks Dean. While for the most part it's a walk up to the pass, I also wanted to remind folks that it can be a bit dicey up there.
