Special Thanks to Torch Team Trip Reporter Matt (Wxman):

A rather strange night, one of the strangest I can recall,
Traffic backups on I-90, delayed the start of some but not all.
EWB and Zephyr started early, WxMan and Steve started late,
Everything seemed to be normal at first, but soon would deteriorate.
In that tricky bit ‘bove Talapus, WxMan got separated, from Bear,
WxMan went back, Steve carried on to join the celebratory summit affair.
On the descent back down from the summit, some mix-up ensued on the way,
“Wait where is Den?” was uttered, “Is that him down there by Olallie?”
An eventual rendezvous happened, and the last TNABbers found their way down,
After traffic, lost dogs, and marco-polo rounds; alas the tired bunch was Pour House bound.
Here’s to hoping for some grand sunsets and summit shots (pun intended ;-) ) as the long days of summer set in!

‘Second Hand’ Trip Report by Jo:

Some climbed Denny by boot, some traveled by ski,
but whatever the mode, it was fast as can be.

The race to the top presented some hitches,
one small slip of the hand ended with stitches.

When the crew made the summit, they couldn’t help but smile,
TNAB hasn’t had clear views in a very long while.

At the PourHouse all were reunited,
and a much missed torch team vet was sighted.

It’s good to hear those injured are on the mend,
and will soon be back on trails around the Bend.
