July 22, 2001, Paradise Glacier, Mt. Rainier NP
WA Cascades West Slopes South (Mt Rainier)
Overcast skies prevailed as we left Seattle but the "sucker holes" became more prevalent as we approached Rainier. We were hoping to avoid a replay of the trip the week before in which we played around in the clouds all day. Found mostly sunny skies as we climbed above the broken cloud cover as we homed in on the object of our affections, several skiable slopes to have our way with - which we did; until totally sated and out of time. Good corn was to be had on a firm base, as the pics will confirm. Again, managed to ski back out to the Skyline Trail, but that's probably not going to happen again this year. This time it was not only a great day with great company, but just about all the turns we could handle, as well.
