Mount Democrat

Our plan today was to climb Mounts Democrat, Lincoln, and Bross -- all 14ers. The weather had other plans.

We decided to hike to the saddle between Democrat and Cameron and decide from there whether to continue. The weather didn't get any better, but since it wasn't much worse either we decided to summit Democrat. The view from the summit was mostly white.

The fog/clouds were thick enough that you couldn't see more than 100' ahead. On the way down it began to snow graupel -- stung a bit when facing into the wind.

It was getting late and the view from Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross would be about the same, so we headed back to the car. Too tired to write any more (up since 4am), check out the pictures.
