Earl and Bean Peaks, 6/30/07

What is the essence of the Teanaway?

It is rising at 5:00 AM on a Saturday morning, then driving three hours east to a remote trailhead.

It is trudging up dusty scree slopes under sunny skies to the top of Earl Peak.

It is standing in awe of the scenery, ingesting the views offered by the Stuart Range and surrounding peaks.

It is transcending oneself on a ridge traverse from Earl to Bean Peak.

It is impromptu, but good-natured snowball fights.

It is spending all day with good friends in beautiful country on a glorious summer day.

That, my friends, is the essence of the Teanaway!

Cheers,

I see I wasn't the only one besieged by butterflies in the Teanaway on Saturday.

2478 is my favorite "action" photo. :-)

whoo hoo!  I had a great time..two peaks in one day.. WTF..1st for me.. hell one peak in  a season is good for me  lol.gif

I still have to prepare my pics....I was one tired pup and slept most of the day yesterday..I almost felt hungover...twas strange.


Yet is a ROCK MONSTER... watch out people.. I see this girl getting really wild in the near futrue.. who knows what we are going to see her doing.

The whippets were some rock climbing fools..no doubt.  I am soooo glad Mr. Big was not there... I dont think I would have been able to lift his bigness up there and wouldnt have been able to summit...whew.

I did get to hold everyones hand on this trip..it was a special moment for each of us..I am sure ..I promise I wont tell your significant others... just in case they didnt see  lol.gif  moon.gif

Too bad we didnt get the end of the trail head pic.... I fell to my knees and almost couldnt make the last 50 feet to the cars  paranoid.gif  lol.gif

Thanks for inviting me y'all

Pics are coming later!

Nice job you guys!  My wife was doing Navaho Peak this weekend.  She tells me there was plenty of sun out there.  I am sure that you all have the tan to proove it!

Nice, different, minimalist writing style. I like  up.gif  (but then again, I am easily amused).

And yes, AB, I do love the rocks!!! And ahem...that was not my hand you held.  wink.gif

And since I could not resist, I am posting more photos. I love all 120+ I took! So hard to choose. Of course, but a mere fraction of what Tisha took - 200+??

Can't wait to see your pics, AB and SA! In the meantime, here's more from my camera...

Here's a couple of videos for you to enjoy while Tisha sorts through our 325 images (that's both jer and tish's combined)!!!!!!!  Alright, folks, I think we can safely admit we have a picture taking problem.  redface.gif

Glad you folks had fun!  Looks like a great trip.  Too busy on the home front to make it this weekend.  How were bugs?  I'm reading all the trs these days, and it sounds like the bugs are coming out in droves.
