Bruce, Sooz and Joe(me) at the start of our hike at 3,040 feet. There are a couple of ways to hike to Whale Peak. We decided to used the longer route with more gain starting out of Little Blair Valley.
When the sun went down, it got cold fast. We had a small fire going to stay warm. We got lucky in that the Geminids meteor shower was happening this night. We saw a lot of them, some were really bright and even left trails.
