While hiking up the SW side of Fortress, I noticed I was walking on pumice. It hadn't occurred to me until then that I was only about 9 miles from Glacier Peak's summit.
Just one more reason to visit this beautiful area.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
