  1. Beautiful pics, Nita. I can hardly wait to make the climb. Of course, I might be a little tempted to claim jump that piece of property with the cute little cabin on it...

  3. My husband has climbed Mt. Ranier too, and loved it. He's climbs Mt Hood now and then, and St. Helens but Ranier was much more challenging for him.
