Apparently we don't need to go to the Cecil any more, to see the peelers.

Looks painful - I hope Sandra heals up soon. Lots of time in cool water e.g. Browning or Brohm Lake, is the thing.

That might be the funniest thing I've ever heard Anders say.

The best I might have come up with was, ouch.

Jim Brennan:

I do believe this photo you posted is from Mt. Stuart, WA with Stuart Lake below, not the Chehalis Range. Though I could be wrong, but....

Well Jplotz!,

It seems I'm wrong about various valleys within the same 200 mile, or 4 hour drive radius from Vancouver. So many adventures were more about things getting wet and cars stuck in mud while the sun sunk into the forest, than about climbing something. The picture is probably 28 years old...

HAHAHAHA! is my only excuse...


You know, the nature of photo film, especially slides, lends itself to being mixed up because so many shots were duds and so many were good ones that fit in with others when you tried to put a show and tell slideshow together for friends.

You only knew it after paying for the physical film.

Good catch, because trips to both places happened.

Yes Jim, it's a place that feels trapped in a time long since passed.


Really enjoying these old shots too boys thanks!

The thing about going to Mt. Stuart was camping high, with the North Ridge just a snowfield away.

The early morning was cold with a convection of cloud rising on the other side of the ridge that contained it all. The weather rose efficiently and once it breached the ridge crest, we watched the cloud plummet over like a waterfall,driving into the low pressure at the bottom of our valley.

Then there was nothing but fog !

Mountaineering's hard...

God, I love this thread. My last two posts were to the "what is ass" thread and something about dagos.

Really cool pics and dismembered memories, Jim. You are now a full member of the CRS battalion. (can't remember shite"

Was there an accident on the Chief today? (Saturday, 2 Aug)

After we got baked off whatever it was we were pretending to climb we wound up in town and on the spit in the afternoon, and could hear and see a helicopter hovering around the upper North Gulley. Eventually it went away, but not long after came back and spent more time in there.

Always scary to hear & see that.

Yes Dave. Apparently there was a non life threatening injury on Angel's Crest this afternoon.
