    This is an absolutely awesome album! Brings you along every step. This was obviously an exceptional day. Makes me wish I was there - and makes a winter Washington ascent seem quite doable. Of course if the weather changes... - But it certainly cooperated for you guys!

    I've gone up Washington many times in the winter. The weather that day was by far the best I've seen. The winds were low during most of our climb. Winds picked up considerably just as we approached timberline on the back side of Lions Head. We were glad to be mostly sheltered.

    All I have to say is, SWEEEEEEEEEEEEET! I am trying to set an overnight trip for mid-march. Can't wait! Thanks, you just got my butt in high gear.
