Return of Mountaineering in the Cascades

Because of the trip I did last year, I just had to sign up for more. It is a 10 day mountaineering seminar that NOLS offers their instructors. With it only being an hour and a half south I jumped in the van and headed back to the States. We organised gear the next day and took off for the hills.

This time round there were only 6 of us and an all female trip. You could just imagine the shenanagins we got up to. We managed to hit 3 peaks, travel a bunch on glacier, go crevasse diving, abseil of steep passes, have photo shoots and a whole lota a laughter - not to mention the blue bird skies every day!

The views...








The Camping...




The summits...





The people...




The skills...






The Marmots...
