Mt Adam's in the Deep Background
So it was a foggy drizzle again to
start the day but we were pumped to get after it and we know they have got to keep the many camps on schedule. So up we went through the clouds to start our day from the top. Here we are gathering together at the upper cirque traverse. The top of chair access, upper mid Palmer snowfield. In mid winter all of the chairs over here are buried in deep snow. That's the kind of info that really adjust ones perspective in a given place. It's like standing below flood lines (aka "bathtub rings") in river canyons. Far behind the kids, 75 miles( we are told) is Mt Adams sticking up through the clouds.
