Columbia Crest 1999
On the summit of Rainier in July 1999 with Dan Harder. That's Mount Adams in the background. I love this photo not just because it was my first Rainier summit, but also because with my wool pants & suspenders and my button-up base layer shirt I look like a mountaineer at the end of the Nineteenth Century, not the end of the Millennia. The only thing missing from that outfit was a Victorian alpenstock, the four-foot long wood handled early ice axes, and a Tyrolean hat with a feather in the brim.
