      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Do you have to muffle your derisive chuckles, or are all the library inhibitants too busy chortling to themselves to notice you?

The library "inhibitants" keep giving me the evil eye when I yell out, "STEAKSAUCE!!!"

 

Maybe I'll go look up "steaksauce" in the card catalog.

Oh Mendenhall, My Mendenhall,

Wherefore art thou, my Mendenhall?

To rain, and then to rain,

That is the forecast.

Whether tis nobler,

to go home to Seattle

Or stay in Juneau and Spray?

Alaska (weather) is still SUCK!

 

Isn't this supposed to be the land of the midnight SUN!?!??

 

It's not all bad though... went kayaking around the snout of the Mendenhall Glacier today. Iceburgs. Coolness.

 

 

Thank you for allow soggy American to post.

"sea" any "otter"s up there? tongue.gif

 

We have seen some Dall and Harbor Porpoises, but no otters. I thought we otter have seen some by now. More bald eagles than you can shake a sockeye at.

 

Yesterday we kayaked over to the glacier and bouldered around a bit. My aluminum pons did all right on the seracs. thumbs_up.gif

 

 

Rain. Tourists. Fog. Blue-hairs. Drizzle. "Newly-weds and Nearly-deads". Clouds. Parts of Clouds. Tourons. Fog. Liquid Sunshine. Showers. Rubber boots aka "Sitka Slippers". "Marine Air".
