June 10, 2017 - Return to #colchucklake with a few flurries Saturday afternoon 🏔🌨 @stacyelise1 this hike will always make me think of you running up & down the snow & ice and how I couldn't keep up! #dragontailpeak #centralcascades

We 'ran' 22 miles through the Enchantments this weekend, but they've been running through my mind since I stepped off the trail.

⚠️ graphic⚠️ @americangrime and I climbed #dragontailpeak via the #backboneridge last weekend. Just below the last few pitches of quality climbing I dislodged a rock that hit Trent in the jaw. I built an anchor, brought him up and we decided that up was our best way off. We waited for the party behind us to help belay and swap leads in case Trent were to pass out. The guys behind us ended up being climbing rangers and helped out more than we could have ever hoped for.
Trent got to an ER 12hours after he got hit by the stone. Shoutout to Trent for suffering through 12 full hours of grit to get to the hospital.
All day I've been reviewing my actions. Should we have been pitching that section out? Was it just bad rock or my bad move? What if it hit him somewhere else?
I'm shook about nearly killing a close friend. #choss #climbing #prg #mtnshop #cilogear #mtnshoppdx

Dragontail Peak towering over 3,000ft above Colchuck Lake, viewed from right next to camp. Asgard Pass on the left, and Colchuck Glacier on the right. While the official trail goes up Aasgard, we chose the other, more strenuous route up the glacier. #dragontailpeak #colchucklake #alpinelakeswilderness #enchantments #reflection #granitepeak #glacier #mosquitoheaven #aasgardpass #colchuckpass #mountains #northernwashington #lotterywinners #colchuckzone

I can't find the words to describe this trip so far. The things I've seen and experienced have far surpassed my vocabulary. This past week @cody_the_nelson and I have climbed St Helens, explored waterfalls, kicked around on Hood, thru hiked the Enchantments in a day with @laducb @justindong_ and bagged Dragontail Peak. We've laughed, we had an emotional breakdown of hilarious proportions in the produce section at Safeway, we've searched for hours exhausted for somewhere to camp in the forest. I reached my lowest low, and came out stronger because of it (hopefully). And now we said goodbye (for now), and I have this week solo to explore before the next chapter in Canada. Anyone have suggestions in the North Cascades for someone who can barely walk, because my feet are actually all bruised and purple from too much hiking 🤦🏼‍♀️ #ginasfacetegram

Slightly different angles but both show Isolation Lake in the Enchantments. Photos taken 11 days apart. Snow is melting fast!
