Nice trail.



June 8-9, Mt. Baker: Squak Glacier Route

Kevin, excited about the free human poop bags.
 It's going to be a fun two days.  Starting elevation was 3,300 feet.
Car was parked about a qurter mile from Schreiber's  Meadows.

Greg and Kelly relax at our camp, Crag View elev. 6513.
First day elevation gain 3,200 feet.  Weight of our packs
filled with lightweight gear - a lot!

Gourmet dinner of chicken and rice.

We brought our rope, so pulled it out for one section of the climb,
although the crevasse danger seemed minimal.

Greg heads for the Roman Wall

Kelly, in crampons, heads up the Roman Wall.
Deming Glacier looks well crevassed below.
