“I was here first”

Have not yet managed to “capture” the exquisite wildlife shots that $eths group managed but I will see what I can come up with on my last climb next weekend. Regardless of our lack of the cascadian fox sightings it is my pleasure to report the whole group is Safely at Ingraham flats and doing extremely well. Today following a relaxed bacon,eggs and blueberry pancake breakfast we completed a snow school which equipped us with the skills that allow us to be safely guided on the upper mountain. For September it does not get any better ,it is absolutely beautiful and we are all looking forward to the climb ahead . I will keep you posted of progress. $tu
