Dawn on the Cleaver

Dawn on the Cleaver Posted by Hello

This image was taken June 3, 2004 on Mt. Rainier (just a few hours after we had a great view of this omen). The meteor was so close we could actually hear it! We mistook it for an emergency flare at first.

Dawn was just beginning to break around 5am when this picture was taken and we we had climbed to roughly 12,000 feet in altitude. Shortly after, we had to abandon our summit bid due to avalanche conditions. My plan is to make another attempt sometime this summer.

UPDATE: Send me an e-mail if you're interested in seeing a video of the meteor flash. It's not from our climbing group, but interesting nonetheless.
