I grew up in Colorado where I was exposed to, among other things, mountains. As it turns out, there are quite a few mountains in the Northwest too, some of which are covered in a hard, cold, white substance that is usually to be avoided in the Colorado mountains but which is unavoidable here, namely ice. Here are a few snapshots showing my recent encounters with this mysterious substance.
This photo shows me at Camp Sherman at about 9500 ft. on Mount Ranier.
The next day, I reached the summit to experience this fabulous view.
This climb took place in late spring (early June, I think) in 1993 and my partner and guru in the endeavor was Pat Timson.
