Picture of the week 33
This image still invokes awesome emotions three years after it was captured.
Upon our arrival at Arrow Glacier Camp, our head guide and my son & I continued part way up the Western Breach Route as part of our acclimatization program.
As our head guide, Stephen, and my son descend, both Arrow Camp (middle left) and Lava Tower (middle right) can be seen delineated by the long shadows cast by the setting sun. Even the Shira Plateau can be seen off in the distance, the very ground we had covered over the preceding 7 days. Seeing almost our whole route at one time gave us an outstanding sense of accomplishment.
The following day would put the long awaited and anticipated, Western Breach, behind us.
