      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!

did you happen to stop by the ranger station and let them know about the water bottle? It may be a clue, it may be garbage ... but worth letting the NPS know about it.


No, I thought about it, but I didn't tell the park service. It was right on the main route so I figued SAR folks had already been over that ground a hundred times over the past two weeks. Mostly I just felt stupid...

It might still be worth telling the Park Service about that bottle; things can be buried during storm and then uncovered again by the wind and abrasive effect of blowing snow. Even if it is on the main route, it might well have been buried the last time SAR went by, only to be in plain sight on your trip. I'd certainly tell them. And please, no need to feel stupid, your conclusion was perfectly reasonable and logical. No blame. :tup:
