Near the summit of Mt. Madison, NH
On my way down from the summit I turned to get a quick photo of my pals following behind. This was one hellish climb. Not because of technical difficulty, but due to the fact that I had spent the previous week on a road trip around the great lakes, with strep throat and a 105 fever. I had no intention of letting that keep me from a climb with my buddies though. The wind was fierce on the summit cone and I was bootlegging it down as it was blowing right through my woolen knickers. After making this exposure, I tucked the camera in my jacket pocket, and with ice axe in one hand and the other covering the jewels, I hobbled down the rocks and ice screaming, "Oh please, oh please, frostbite anywhere but there!!!"
