August 14, 2010 Paradise Gacier Scavenger Hunt
« on: 08/15/10, 03:16 PM »

glenn_b and I left Ellensburg around 7:15 and headed to Paradise, which was already a zoo when we arrived.  We continued to 4th Crossing, where we hiked our way to the Paradise Glacier trail.  We put our skins on at 6200', and managed to leave them on the entire trip up (I did, anyway... He took his off to avoid climbing around a rock outcropping).  A lot of the snow bridges around Steven's Creek are getting sketchy...

Paradise Glacier is looking very good, although it has crevasses they are easy to dodge.  We climbed to 8500', but couldn't see any point in going higher as the snow looked fairly marginal above.  We saw the other group that posted a TR for Paradise glacier, as well as two skiers heading down from Muir over to our west.

Besides skiing, we managed to remove the follow debris from the mountain: a coffee strainer, what looks like a plastic cap for a portable coffee grinder, and tent stake, and a large piece of aluminum foil.  If we found all that at one place, I would call it a forgetful camper, but.... 

From our vantage point we could see into the tairn at Pinnacle.  A little blue and wet around the edges; it'll be open for skimming very soon!

If you don't do it this year, you'll be one year older when you don't do it next year.

Hey, Jimmy,
Maybe you can find your sunglasses before the water gets all choppy!  Cool

The best part of summer skiing is napping on a warm rock.
