08-22-08 Camp Muir
« on: 08/26/08, 06:10 AM »

I know, not another trip report to Camp Muir, but who would have thought there would be some fresh tracks at the end of August!!  I wasn't expecting the skiing to be any good (I just hate walking down), but was pleasantly surprised with no sun cups a little localized fresh snow over the old dirty stuff.  As previously reported there was 3000 feet of continuous skiing.  There was only one other skier on the slopes and lots of guided climbers back from their summit bid.  The only negative is my old boots are heavy and I need new ones.

Congratulations on your first post!  At least you got to slide those big bad ol' boots down the hill.   Grin

On the subject, does anyone know if this wet summer weather is part of a longer pattern?
I read somewhere this spring that we may well be in the middle of a 2-3 year La Nina pattern with another winter like the last one in store!  -can't remember the source....
