Mt. Rainier June 1998

Here are a few pictures from my mountaineering crevasse rescue field trip. It was a beautiful sunny weekend in June of 1998. We set out from Paradise and hiked up the Nisqually Glacier. There were crevasses all over the place! We found a big one and set up our equipment. I was the first one lowered into the crevasse. I was scared! However after hanging in the crevasse for 15 minutes I began to enjoy the situation! How many people get to see the inside of a crevasse and get to live to tell about it! So take a look at the pictures I took of that awesome day!
