Thank you, Jay. It was some stuff I had wanted to share for quite a while, but I couldn't get the pics uploaded. Long story. They wouldn't be here now if it weren't for a lot of help and patience on the part of Greg Mihalik. I owe him.

Tom,
Outstanding Shots! You found some beautiful country.

Glad I could help.
If I get to the PNW you can buy me a beer, provided I get the see the rest of those pictures. ;-))

"If I get to the PNW you can buy me a beer, provided I get the see the rest of those pictures. ;-))"

That would be my pleasure on both counts.

Give me a heads up if you ever get out this way. If your schedule and mood permit, I'll throw in a quality hike. :)

Then you realized they had just finished reading the thread on UL backpacking and guns.....

Sorry, couldn't resist! ;-)

This summer I did an overnight hike to a hut in the alps, in the Wetterstein, on the Austria/Germany border.

Looking back at my hiking partners, aged 70 and 14:
