Hans Bluedorn, Nathaniel Bluedorn, David Rasmussen and sons Tyler and Dane climbed Mount Rainier on September 9-11.

An important, but time-consuming part of the climb.
Starting out while it’s still dark.
Here comes the sun.
I’d like to enjoy the view — but can’t breathe.
Don’t go in there. Sasquatch moved to Rainier this summer.
