Mt. Saint Helens, 4/28/02

Hiking through the clouds with a bunch of skiers

Now we're above the clouds and can see Mt. Adams

Emily says that's enough 800 feet from the summit

Mt. Saint Helens, 5/6/01

Ten of us from Seattle headed for Cougar, Jack's Restaurant, and Marblemount Snow Park to climb Mt. St. Helens on Sunday, 5/6/01. Shown, left to right, our sub-group of 6: Bryant Miller (toting his skis for the descent), David Kline, Doug Schurman, Mark Landgreen, (not shown: photographer) Courtenay Schurman, and climbing dog extraordinaire, Emily. It was a beautiful morning and about 200 others chose to ascend the same day before the 100-climber limit was imposed May 15.

A great shot of our objective! Snow-covered (still) in May, St. Helens tends to be more enjoyable early season when ash remains blanketed in snow. Glissading is plentiful and easily our favorite in the state of Washington!

Great start to a perfect day, looking up at summit along Wormflows route. Skies always appear to be so incredibly blue at elevation!

Emily eagerly looks back at climbing partners lagging behind her
