26 June - 3 July, 2010
We've just returned from our annual www.CascadeGlacierSchool.com. Our team of men and women of all ages had a fun time practicing ice climbing, roped glacier travel, crevasse self-rescue, snow camping, and we even made an attempt to try the summit of a very high 4500 metre glaciated volcano. Below our some photos our members took:
