With the snowpack of '98-'99,
who could resist this outdoor adventure? Lots of Winter fun iglooing
and snow caving...
My daughter, Erin, and I made our
first igloo together. Although not perfectly dome shaped, it took
us less than an hour to complete.
Darrin and I snow-caved by Reflection
Lake on Mt Rainier.
Here's my second igloo of the year
by Anvil Rock on the Muir snowfield. Top left is Mt Adams.
Top right is a photograph of Mt Rainier's shadow cast to the east.
Night on the mountain.
Day or night? A 15
minute exposure, this is actually a night photo (note the stars).
Once the igloo was collapsed and
I was heading down, the weather turned for the worse. At best,
visibility was about 40 feet and at times I couldn't see my feet.
It doesn't get any better than this!
