Clearing Storm at 13,000+
After being stuck in a tent for a day on the edge of a moraine at 13,000+ feet as a storm rolled by overhead, the weather finally started to clear. I grabbed my tripod and camera and picked my way across the moraine. I hopped from boulder to boulder out to the edge of Upper Fremont Glacier and set my tripod up looking down on the snow, ice, rock, and sky off to the north. The clouds cover the top of Mount Helen on the left side of the image. The snowfield going up the middle of the image between the cloud-covered mountaintops is Elsie Col. The next morning, we descended onto the glaciers in the photo and ascended Elsie Col on our way to Gannett Peak.
