Yeah, 1969. Vietnam, Creedence, Nixon, no helmets, goldline rope, diaper slings,wooden ice axes. Geez, I was kinda young back then and this shot was taken at the rim just after we came back from Columbia Crest. I was thinking about the guides comment "remember, we are only half way done". Not the classical poser shot, I was already pretty tired and I still had half to go. At least it was downhill. Well, I'm still hiking and climbing proving that you can keep doing this stuff if you keep doing this stuff. Aug. 11, 1969 Scanned from a Kodacrome ASA 25 slide.

I love it...

What a great shot! Got anymore from Rainier that you haven't shared with us yet?

Re: I love it...

Thank you and the answer is yes. All I have to do is sort through them and then scan them. Of course, right now, everything is boxed up for the move so it'll be awhile before I can "dust" off some of this ancient history stuff.
BTW, I drove home yesterday arriving at midnight. 9 1/2 hours of straight thru driving. Shoulda been hiking.

You look the same !!

You haven't changed a bit. Still sitting around waiting for someone to drag your butt up a mountain.

Re: You look the same !!

You are SO wrong. I have already been up the mountain, now I'm waiting for the HELICOPTER to come take me down the mountain. I hope you feel bad for your comment. Of course, I still am just as good looking.
I copied the pose from Sir Edward Hillary when he conquered Everest. You must be sitting around up to no good today. Get out there and hike.

Peace ... not war !

Hey, could you guys please stop
your scrabbling. Makes me want to
FLOAT like a butterfly ... and
disappear. Or, maybe tie a cowbell
to a moose. Count your blessings!
