Wedding Quilt and Cooper Spur Under the “Super” Moon

The wedding quilt that I have been working on is nearly finished.  I was hand stitching the binding on the way to and from our weekend backpack.

crevassesSunday morning, we headed up to the 8,500′ level of the spur where we decided to turn around because of a snow-covered knife edge.  You can see the clouds moving in.  This was at 8am.  We hoofed it down to tree line.

No More at 8500 ftThis was 8:17.  Clouds were really moving and there was thunder and ligntning (cloud to cloud).

I have to say that the last time we were caught in a thunder/lightning storm was when the kids were little and we were in the southwest.  Kevin was in the car with Charles who was sick and I was with Sarah and Andrew (7 yrs. old) on a ridge.  We had to get past it to continue on the trail.  Somehow we did and we’re here to tell about it.
