Dairy Queen Delight

(Minya Peak - Delta Range - Sep 2009)

Labor Day turned out to be an ice-cream lovers dream. Three days to attempt Institute Peak. A cloud capped Institute encouraged us to set our sights on the ever delightful corniced peak of Minya. The peak was swirled like the tastiest vanilla soft-serve on a hot summer day.

(Orca VW Bug!! - Free Willy's Alaskan Cousin?)

(Glacier camping - in summer requires rock removal)

(Little did we know the peak would soon be cloudy)

(Up, up and away)

(Phooey! Not enough pickets and a CLOUD)

(Kick-stepping our way to the frosty cornice. September snow is incredible!)

(Great views of the Deltas on our way down)
