    Default STP 2009 - Tim, Val, Debi and Heather

    Hi Everyone,

    We had a great hike on Saturday! Congratulations to our sister-in-law, Heather, for her first ascent of MW! We really enjoyed seeing everyone at the dinner!

    Trip report here

    I'm very sad that we missed Kevin and Judy's shin-dig again, but we'll try to catch up with you on a day other than STP this year. We did have a nice Sunday night with Mark and Natalie!

    very nice pictures
    and i was thinking the same thing " Does it help you or hurt you that you cannot see the summit when you are hiking? "

    in my case i think it helped me make it ,i was getting a little tired and if i could see how much more i had to go it may have bin harder . but i liked it when i walked up to Brad and Ed ,Brad said look whats hear the auto road
    that made my day

    Default Way cool!

    Great TR and report! We didn't get the wind on Boott Spur and lots more views. The flower is Painted Cup Castilleja septentrionalis. Nice pics!

    Great TR and pics Val (and Tim). Was great getting the time on the trail with you guys as well as the Sunday night campfire. My apologies to Heather for leaving her name out of our TR. Names seem to fall out of my head way too quickly these days. Tough getting old Look forward to seeing all of you again in the mountains soon!

    Great T/R Val. I read it on your site and just now remembered I hadn't made a comment here. Your pictures are fantastic. I was in fog like that all on the summit and into the ravine. I need to get back into the ravine when its clear. Hopefully in the fall the colors must be beautiful. I am going to try to take Brad up on an offer to go into it in the winter for a sunrise. Hopefully I will get some time off to do that. I hope you don't mind but I am going to try to snag a copy of the picture of my family you took at the dinner.

    P.S. looking forward to you Mt. Mausilauke report. I am trying to get there the second week of Sept.

    Chris, a place to check out in the fall is Square Ledge right across the road from PNVC. We were not sure of the trail and did not take tripods with us. But, it turns out taking a good solid tripod would not have been hard. I am hoping to do that again this fall.

    Thanks for the head up on Square Ledge. I will look into that. My new tripod folds up to about 14" and only weighs 3.5#'s so bringing it is pretty easy. Its a Benro carbon fiber travel angel with ball head. I find it to be very solid. Can you get a good shot of the ravines from there?
