The trip ended with a 12-hour glacier/snow trek and technical rock climbing to reach the summit of Mt. Shuksan. And as I said, I rocked it. We were the lead rope team and the first to the top. The views were just amazing, I believe better than atop of Mt. Rainier. We could see as far as to Canadian Rockies, Mt. Olympus, Mt. Rainier, the entire North Cascades with Mt. Baker in our face. Pictures don’t do this trip justice, but here are some more to try.
For those who are interested to hear about my, eh, bowel movements, this was the view from the pooper! I was happy to not have to blue bag it this time around. In case you are wondering, “blue bag” would be the method you use to pick up your dog’s poop.
And much to my wife’s dismay, I am ready for more mountains. Which brings me to my next question … anyone want to fund a trip to Alaska for me to climb? I am now accepting donations!
