Sheesh.  I've looked down that wall in April and it scared me.....such relief and snow plastered rock baking in the sun.  Well done guys!

At the exact instant you took these photos, Steve and I were slogging up isothermic mush somewhere up Hwy 20 (on snowshoes!).  We ultimately did nothing but find an extremely scenic lunch spot.  It's embarrassing to compare the time stamps.

Saturday was a lot of fun, while Sunday was outstanding.

It took four tries to nail the full descent of Lincoln.  You need plenty of snow up in the 'theatre - so early in the season is better -  and also you need a hard freeze like we had to really enjoy the headwall as it is low in altitude and heats up pretty quick.

A great visit, oh yes, but especially nice as the inner dirtbag in you, Ron, glows with delight at the thought that work paid for all that fun.

Anyone interested in making a day trip to Camp Muir next week, maybe Tuesday? I could be flexible on the day.

I decided to put off getting a summer job until mid-June and make a triumphant return to the promise land for some much needed butterquesting. Flight gets in on a Wednesday and I plan on fleeing for the hills immediately for at least 3 days, hopefully four if weather is solid. I have some ideas for the 5th-10th involving night photography and riding in the Southern Pickets or Eldorado area or something. Saving Rainier for the last couple of days before leaving, but am open to suggestions for the first leg of the trip. May be a stretch, but if Glacier Meadows still has a lot of snow I'm up for a more relaxed multi-day trek up the Hoh for some Olympus turns.

I think what toddball may be trying to say is thanks Andy for making Snoqualmie look so good!  There is no eight mile road. You just drive up. Occasionally it snows too much. What a drag.

You do realize you make us west-siders look like a bunch o' wimps. This renders us almost completely speechless. The nerve!

Well, it was a good read as always, thank you. Hope the dinner was good if not on time.

Yup.  I carried skis down Eightmile road two Sundays ago; pretty glad I didn't have a deadline to meet then!

The last photo in the cluster below was taken on a 2009 descent of Eightmile Mountain when there was time for the luxury of photography

I thought that was Tom Janisch in that last photo! 

Well done!

awesome effort!  thats quite the haul in there with skis.   

might this be your couloir?   My wife and I were backpacking through the Winds this fall and despite there not being much snow around, as we climbed towards Knapsack Col, we both kept staring back at the big couloir on Mt.Helen.
