Yes, It's #Caturday

Nike wants you all to know that Bennie is her faithful acolyte and honorary catdog (yes, there is such a thing, ignorant hoomans). He sits with her in the balcony, he folds his paws under him like she does. He licks those paws first thing in the morning, like she does and when it comes to food, because she cannot beg (she has high standards) she sends Bennie to check if we are near that time of the day yet. :)

On the Edge,   Eldorado Peak

Photo
After climbing Eldorado Peak I was able to take this photo of the next team climbing this distinctive ridge. I spent 3 days and 2 nights on an ice cap with various climbs. All of the climbs were exceptional and the views and photography were also great.

Climbing Junkie Story
At night I would sleep with at least one quart of water so it would not freeze. I was able to make several quarts of water each day using a couple of methods and excluding a stove. Even though this area gets the worlds record of snowfall time and time again. There was no melt-off that was easily accessible to gather.  ....Our record snows; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snow#Records
