The route -- red is up, green is down (including the little dead-end route I got us on trying to extend the skiing).
It's a beautiful day -- let's go hiking in the rain with all our ski gear and crevasse rescue gear!
"Andrea, will you *please* let me use your -- ahem -- *our* umbrella?"
Andrea wised up and turned around here, leaving the boys to their fun. (Looks inviting up ahead, yes?)
Switching over from hiking mode to glacier travel mode.
And we're off!
Hmm, where'd that blue sky come from?
Looking back at Jeff.
Jonathan leading -- "let's go . . . *that* way!"
"Or maybe that other way instead..."
"Oh, I don't know -- it all looks sort of good I suppose."
Time to ski . . . fresh powder in late August?
