I thank you for your posts with good info, it is much appreachiated I defintley see I've got a few new hikes to look into next time my work brings me to your beautiful area ( Ok so I usaully end up in a confernce hotel down boston, but it's a easy drive up 93)

Also, I think what Bill O said it very true... in order to truley make the judgment of these trails it is best to have some exposure to diffrent areas. I'm very happy to be planning a 5th anniversary trip to Washington state this Summer with my wife, and we hope to climb Raineer & Baxter. I may also be lucky later in the year and end up near Grand Teton??? I'll defintley post pics off all this and thanks again to all of you for post/info

Best, Tim
