Seasonal goodbyes

24-second 2020 video: Saying goodbye to ‘friends’ at the Piegan-Pollock saddle.

Each Glacier visit since 2013 has been marked by an ever-increasing reality that eventually, and without warning, that Glacier trip will be my last.

Being mindful and present to know this empowers me to make the most of each and every day there.

In a perfect (excellent) world, this happens 365 days a year, no matter where i am or who i’m with.

Most important of the 19 blueprints

Classic cliche: If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.

Piegan’s cairn

18-second 2020 video: Piegan’s cairn…a delightful look into the Many Glacier valley.

Mt Siyeh. And Grogu.

Want to mention the Piegan summit cost me a pair of eye-glasses.

Placed them in my vest pocket while shooting a video. Forgot about it and was laying on my belly to get a Disney character (Grogu) photo and crushed the glasses.

From that moment on, always carry spare eye-glasses.

Note: The blessing is being able to see distance. The other blessing is i didn’t need to read a map or compass to descend.

Piegan Glacier from above

15-second 2020 video: To be in this place under the circumstances completely blew my mind.

To find courage, time, and tenacity, to pursue personal leadership vibrancy can seem elusive. May serendipity and karma bless you with a lucky break or two this season.

Regarding the 15-second video: To be in this place under the circumstances completely blew my mind.

The OMG in this video is because summiting Piegan Mountain was not in the plan. Was actually doing reconnaissance for Pollock Mountain for a future solo attempt. It was so cold and windy, i almost descended after a few minutes at the saddle. The saddle between Pollock and Piegan is an unforgiving wind tunnel.

In the moment, decided to start walking toward Piegan to see what would happen. Maybe the wind would die down. Maybe if i kept moving i could stay warm. One thing led to another. Like a Siren’s Song…the nearly invisible Goat trail beckoned. Serendipity and karma paid me a solid.
