As Cam men-
tioned, we are getting ready for a trip to the snow.
We took a trip to the snow on the second day we were in the N. Cascades National Park. I hadn't been expecting that one.
This Flickr set takes you on the trail with us from the base of the mountain, near Rainy Lake (shown above) to a point high above.
Shortly after this last photo, we began our trek through the snow. That journey will be documented soon.
