Well, I will never get to see this in person! Thank you for taking this photo, it's beautiful!

This is the third time in 15 years i've tried to get on top of this mountain. i owe the success of this 3rd attempt to my energetic and goal driven hiking partner, "Crazy Finn".

Nawitka...and yes this was a magical spot that we stumbled down to (that's glacial snow on the lens, left). No CG enhancements here not even HDR ;) just pure nature.

Stacy,

  • This looks like a great place to stop and water up. At first I did not see a person in the photo, you just blend in. Too bad it was cold, however Congratulation on try number 3! There is one peak near my home called Mt Index . I have never climbed it, but I have tried it 3 times and was skunked each time. Once by weather, another time a partner thing... It can be very fustrating! But I have done a lower North Peak.

  • The North Peak of Index we started early in the morning. This photo is about half way up the North Face of the North Peak of that same Mt Index. Notice the weather is good. Here my partner is cranking out a pitch and we are nearing the top (still good weather). We had the most unbelievable lightning storm that day. Near the top, clouds started to appear both below us in a strata and above us too. Nearing the top lightning started to go off in the distance. My partner asked me "are you scared" and I said no, and went for the summit. On the way back down, we both could smell a strong ozone smell and feel the electric field all around us. One bolt of lightning went off, and I thought I would start to count off the seconds. With the time of thinking that thought, a fraction of a second, we had the biggest thunder bolt boom I have ever experienced. Ever! I changed my mind and said "I am scared now" and we made 10 double rope rappels of the north face with one fixed shaky piton anchor, and one 1/4 inch old bolt. There was also a 30 foot roof we rapped off.

  • Recentyl, I was asked about climbing Mt Index again, and I have given up. We have so many peaks, and 3 trys is enough for me!

  • Randy

I never will have the chance to see everything on mother earth. However, your gallery is a great way to explore and dream... Greetings from the southern side of the Swiss Alps, Andrea
