You Can't Always Get What You Want...

...but if you try sometime, you just might find, you get what you need. So the song says. Winds haven't died down on Washington as predicted so it's out of the plans right now. The next thought was Lafayette, Lincoln, Liberty and Flume. However, yesterday's bullet-proof ice on East Osceola wasn't great for Atticus and I think there would be a lot more of it up on Franconia Ridge. So...instead of getting either of these four-peak climbs in we're headed to Moriah instead. Then we'll come home and see what the storm has in store for us. I'm hoping we don't get too much. Right now is calling for 3.7 inches for us, and a lot more for the coast.
