Last night, I had one of the most wild outdoor experiences of my life.
We were climbing Mt. Adams, spending the first night halfway up at 9k feet at Lunch Counter. The plan was to do the summit today.
Instead, at 11 PM, after we were all settled into our tents, we started to hear thunderstorms. We made the decision to call it and head down for cover. After some crazy fast packing, we were suddenly caught in a hail lightning storm and started high-tailing it down in the dark with our head lamps, GPS, and another friendly group we linked up with. We went all the way down to the cars and set up camp where it was safe and below the tree line. Great adventure, and this means we need to start planning our next summit attempt now :)
