I would like to post some photos from the bottom of a crevasse, but I can't figure out how to add the regular pictures? Or how to vote? or who to ask these questions :)

Good job!

But how did you get down to this crevasse?

So glad you asked. I had the idea to drop our video camera down the crevasse and my husband came up with the idea of a fishing pole ( a sturdy deep sea one) We put the camera facing up in large pumpkin can.( padded). It spun around a bit, but it eventually touched the bottom and took some still video. I have made a video for myself that I have enjoyed so many times from the warmth and safety of my house. I don't know if we'll ever venture up there again, so the video is such a treasure to me. I was hoping to pass on our successful experiment to others who might want to try it. It looks like a beautiful, churning, frozen sea. Thanks again for your direction.

Great idea! Did you post your video on Web (e.g. youtube)? I would love to see it.

About my videos. I haven't posted any of them anywhere. They are pretty personal and include my view of a creator God, scripture, etc. I also usually use Music, which I don't have a copy right to post publicly. But I want to thank you and the other "real climbers" for posting your photos and stories. I have enjoyed them so much and am in total awe of the scenery and your experiences. Maybe I will even get brave enough to spend a night up there, so I'll have enough time to soak in the beauty and video some more.Summiting has never been my goal. Our trip was a one day event so there was no time to day dream.Thanks again for the encouragement. Sheila

You're welcome.

Perhaps some day you would like to visit Hidden Valley on Shasta once the snow is gone. It’s a nice place to relax and contemplate. Just check for the trail clearance and water availability before you go.
