Mt. Rainier: September 1, 2013

Elevation: 11,200'

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guides Tyler Reid and Garrett Stevens made the prudent decision to call 11,200’ the team’s high point after encountering firm, icy conditions.  The team is making its way across the Cowlitz Glacier towards Camp Muir.  Once back at Camp Muir, everyone will refuel, rest, and repack for the descent back to Paradise.  We look forward to seeing the team back in Ashford early this afternoon.

Kathy and Michelle,  Even though the weather didn’t cooperate, I couldn’t be prouder of my two sisters!  Love, Tamra

Dear Michelle and Family
You still touched the sky! I am sure that you also held intimate and rare beauty!
Love, Maura
