July 31, 2012, Paradise Glacier
« on: 08/01/12, 09:33 PM »

Warm, clear day, perfect for helicopter resupply of Camp Muir, forced us to walk down to Fourth Crossing from Paradise Inn to begin another great day of corn skiing below 8400' on the Paradise and Cowlitz glaciers. We were able to ski within a five minute walk of the one way road which was reopened by the time we arrived.  The road is so smooth we could walk or jog it barefoot back to retrieve the cars.

Day before, I kept my socks on but carried my boots. Much nicer way to end the trip.
