Elliot Glacier from Cooper Spur

Last good day of 2001 season with front clouds beginning to slide across crisp deep blue skies. A tremendous moaning, grit-spewing surface wind rose suddenly about halfway between the shelter on the moraine and tie-in rock. Still brilliant blue sky and white clouds if you looked up and out. By tie-in rock the clarity was falling apart and the wind was cold and miserably stinging. A great people filter as almost all turned around as the wind rose. One of the most spectacular in-the-mountains days I've had. If you want to see a professional's work on the same day, Ellen Bishop was taking pictures halfway up the moraine and has at least three pictures from this day in In Search of Ancient Oregon.
