Shoot. I was there too. Wish we'd seen the SVLUG people. We
were up the hill from the parking lot, but we heard a lot of
whooping down there when the bigger meteors arrived.
Ditto on the cold and the long walk to the peak, but we
hung out till 5:15 or so. There were some really bright ones
just before dawn. During the last hour I had my head inside
my sleeping bag for about 15 minutes to thaw out my nose.
The sight was amazing.
