What was supposed to be an overnight up on Rees got thwarted by bad weather. After carrying a fully loaded pack up to the Waterline trail, watching lightning flashes and listening to thunder clapping along the way, I checked the radar one last time and decided that to continue was not my idea of fun.

Got back to the trailhead just as it started to rain. It lasted for two hours and I drove around and enjoyed the scenery from the dry and warm cab of my truck. Hindsight is 20/20, and it didn't look too bad on the east side of the peaks. Perhaps I should have stuck it out? Nah. I'm comfortable with the decision.

Humphreys and Agassiz got hammered, resulting in a picturesque snowfall, while the lower elevations on that side of the world picked up a good accumulation of hail.

I settled on a spot to camp in Hart Prairie just as the sun was setting providing a magical couple of minutes of post-storm light.

This one's not going anywhere. It's still on my list to spend the night up there.
