We had blues aplenty on this trip: climbed over and above Blue Glacier to summit Mt. Olympus, enjoyed blue skies and broiling hot temperatures on both the approach and on summit day. The mountains themselves seem to reflect the deep August blue skies and on summit morning, the other-worldly glow of the alpine start simply radiated a deep, powerful blue from the heart of the glaciated traverse.
Oddly enough, even though I don't have a climb on the docket for the next few months- I don't have the blues. The mountains will be there, waiting for me, when the time is right.
