So, I just have to update this.  Too good not to share.  When we were up on the summit 6 months ago taking in the sunset, there was a panorama I took that I was super stoked about, but when I got home the photos wouldn't stitch together properly so I gave up on it.  Jake was moving between the first and second photos, and the sunburst looked different in the third and fourth photos and it just wouldn't work when I first tried it.  I came back to it a couple days ago and after 30+ tries I was finally able to get it stitch properly!  I think it's my favorite photo from the trip!

Fantastic shots! Congrats on your summit stay, it's a great spot for an overnighter. I have a duplicate of the evening shadow of the mountain shot, its so distinctive

Did it warm up enough to get running water from the snow bank at the camp site? We lucked into that as a bonus

When I climbed glacier one of my partners was taking a series of photos so he could stitch them together for a panorama. I ran as fast as I could so I could end up on each summit once it was stitched together.

Not running water, but there was melt water where the summit snow met the bivy area dirt.  We weren't expecting that and were quite happy we didn't have to melt snow for water!

I've seen photos like this, and they are quite fun!  I've never taking one, but have been meaning to.  Thanks for the reminder that I gotta do this one of these days!

Aaron, this photo captures that beautiful experience much better than my report and pictures ever could. It's hard to believe that was already six months ago - your photo brought it all right back. Thanks for sharing.
