Dionna, Mark, Nick and I had the boat to ourselves for a great dive on the west wall of K2. Weather was doubtful earlier in the week, to the point where we weren't sure if we'd get out of the bay and were going to switch to an 18/45 plan, but it settled down to the point where we had nearly flat conditions all the way to Yankee Point. Given the NW wind, K2 seemed like a good option, so we dropped into the chute on the SE side, scootered S to the sand, and W along the wall, spotting several boot sponges and many elephant ears and big ling on the way. After a few minutes, we turned back and started ascending the chute, where we remained until we hit the top of the pinnacle at 70', decoing along the pinnacle, with pretty sponges, anemone, rockfish, and big ling (and no barnacles!) to look at for our deep stops and 70'-60' nitrox stops. Mark's first words back on the boat summed up the experience for all of us: "That was a REALLY fun dive! It went by really fast as I was enjoying it so much!"

Its was absolutely awesome. I had a smile a mile wide, zooming up and down the canyons, fantastic colors, huge boot sponges, "an Arch!" that I actually saw.
Holy Smokes.
