Neat shot!

It's almost as if the first climber is stepping off into nothing.

I was down below at Rainier that same day, looking up through the clouds; totally socked in until at least 1:30 pm at Paradise. Wish I had been up there with you!

Re: Neat shot!

Thanks for the comment. Yeah it looked cloudy towards Paradise from above, but our route back to Schurman kept us out of the clouds the entire trip. Very lucky.
