When you’re at THQ….

Coming up the glacier on Hector

 One day Tom and Mike had us climbing up the side of a mountain when Tom said to me, “one day when you’re sitting in THQ you’re going to miss all this.”

Seems it is more than true. Climbing the stairs of 2 Overlea Blvd doesn’t quite give you the same feeling, and I’m only on the 3rd floor!  This was the first time I slept on the mountain – a bit of a hike up to Mount Hector and we needed the full second day to complete the summit and get down off the mountain before dark.

This was the first time I saw someone fall through a snow bridge.  Mike disappeared up to his shoulders 5 minutes after we stepped on to the glacier.  No pictures of that event but it did remind me that mountains are quite unforgiving.

You’ll see by the photo that Phil is quite young but he worked hard and never complained.
