Nice penitentes!

This snow formation is not very common for North America, isn´t it? Sebastian

Re: Nice penitentes!

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

Very cool glacier

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

Re: Very cool glacier

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!!!
