The afternoon sun was warm on our shoulders as we packed up our things at the ranger’s cabin in Tuckerman Ravine. It was time for our sandwiches to kick in and give us the boost we needed to reach the top. Even our lab, packed with enough energy for the entire group, had a snack. With a few corners and some elevation gain, the peak became clear over the treetops. Soon, above tree line, Angel Falls came into sight. As a not-so-well-world-traveler the falls is one of the largest I’ve seen – hopefully impressive to all who pass by.
