Quartz Mountain Meteor Shower

In the middle of July, two of my friends and I ventured to the mostly flat state of Oklahoma to go climbing and leave the Dallas area.

Upon arriving, the sky was dark and the temp unusually low for the time of the year. I took the opportunity to set up my camera and work on capturing meteors and stars as they passed in the night sky.

Once daylight broke, we rose from our tents to see that we had been socked in by a low hanging bank of clouds producing some heavy fog/light mist. This dashed our plans to get up early and climb, though it did allow for a rather delightful breakfast and slow morning.

We did manage to get on the granite eventually, and were able to do two long single pitch climbs.

All in all, this was a great trip to get away and start the shakedown process for getting ready for some big wall and multi-pitch climbing over labor day weekend.
