Chicago Basin - Sunlight and Windom

These pictures are from days 3&4 of our adventure in the Chicago Basin. We started by climbing Sunlight Peak and then heading over to Windom Peak. I expected this to be the easier and more fun hiking day, but I was wrong. For Sunlight, we began by climbing up a steep and loose gully or sand and rocks. It was miserable. After that there was some respectable climbing and a true summit so exposed to a long fall that I never contemplated going up there. Matt of course could not resist. I had expected Windom to be a walkup, but either our info was wrong or we got way off course. Bottom line: not too many pictures to show for it. Thankfully we ran into another family of mountain goats to brighten my spirits. Then back at camp, Matt proposed. All that was left was the backpack out and one really long train ride.
