      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!

[TR] Liberty Bell - Fire in the Sky - 8/13/2012

Trip: Liberty Bell - Fire in the Sky -

 

Date: 8/13/2012

 

Trip Report:

The last few times we've been on top of Liberty Bell we couldn't help but notice that there were sandy benches at the true summit that would be a cool place to bivy and watch the sun go down. So it was that on the night the Perseid Meteor shower peaked Dave and I found ourselves heading up the approach trail with packs stuffed with overnight gear, food for several weeks and a fine selection of whisky. We arrived on top just after the sun went down, enjoyed a beautiful sunset and a great meal. With the lack of light pollution and the elevation the stars were intense. We began seeing the Perseids around 10p coming out of the northeast. Amazing variety of colors, with some leaving long tracer lines. DSC00014.JPGDSC00042.JPGDSC00037.JPGDSC00032.JPG

Nice, but why did you bring your own whisky? Last time I was there the cocktail waitress came 'round quite regularly.
