Distant Summit by BWilliamWest Distant Summit by BWilliamWest
I came here for the view, for this summit, for you
because I knew you would ask, I put myself to this task
I know now that you loved me then, with all your heart, more than the other men …

now time has passed, as the days gone by never do last
so life goes on, and on, and on ….
never to know you again …


Pictured from the South Summit of Mount Adams, Washington, USA, is Mount Hood across the mighty Columbia River in Oregon, USA

This is one of my personal favorites.  It was taken several years ago with a Fuji Finepix S7000 (I guess the camera info is listed alongside the comment section anyway:)).  I was climbing Mount Adams (Washington, USA) with a couple of friends, and we made it to the South summit.  It took a lot of work to get this picture to look somewhat presentable.  It is part of a larger photo, and was taken in somewhat of a hurry.

Appreciate your comment!...:)

The picture is beautiful... the poem poignant but very sad ... never to know you again?

I also read the story of your ascent - that in and of itself is amazing. Thank you for sharing.

It was a difficult climb that day. So late in the season, nearly all of the snow pack had melted away. At 9500 feet, the scree was deep, and for every 2 steps up, it was at least 1 sliding down. Reaching the south summit at approximately 11400 feet nearly exhausted me, and there was little time to enjoy the view. I snapped a few pictures and descended rapidly into the cloud cover below before the fading light disappeared and the approaching storm took control. Arriving at the trail head 6 hours later, I got in my truck and drove home.

Hallie,

Thank you for the comments. I am glad you like this picture.

William

Thank you for saying so. It was a very difficult climb several years ago. But worth it mostly for the opportunity to take this photo.
