    Took some time off a bit ago to head up to Grand Teton National Park in Jackson, Wyoming to climb some of the Tetons. Weather was kind of sketchy driving up, it was raining and there was a pretty wild storm blowing through. We decided to climb friday morning and the weather ended up cooperating just for the climb. It started raining the second we got back to the car. Anyways here are some pics of the MIddle Teton. 12 hours for the 20 mile round trip, with a summit elevation of 12,804 feet.

    At first glance I thought you were running downhill away from the storm :)

    Picture of the Middle Teton. Taken about 5:30am on the morning of Aug 20 about halfway between the lower and upper saddle on the way to the summit of the Grand.
