Yeah, I'm fairly sure penitentes are a lot more common in South America.

I've never seen one like that. Bet it was quite a challenge not to land on your face :-)

How do you know somebody didn't land on their
face? I'm thinking this might be why they call
it the Challenge of Rainier.

Nice perspective looking down on Cowlitz Chimneys!!!
