Mount Olympus - it's in a rainforest after all

Had a nice trip up Mount Olympus with a great group of folks climbing for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. It rained most of the time but that didn't slow us down. Summit day was a bit challenging: we walked into a weather system, had to use GPS to find the summit in a whiteout and scrambled to the top in a driving rain - now that's alpine climbing! Unfortunately, due to the inclement weather I didn't get many pics of the climbing, but I did get some nice shots of the rainforest:







A few shots from summit day:

The wetness continued on our walk out, which had its own casualties:

SUBUNGUAL HEMATOMA


THE CURE: TREPHINATION - NOT FOR THE WEAK STOMACH
