Wow, what a harrowing experience!


Your first picture got my attention so I took a few liberties with it.
Hope you don't mind.

Great trip report - really enjoyed the photos. I'm from Chicago too-wish we could skip the 12 hour drive!

Thanks for the report. It's cool reading about what other people did while we were in, under the same conditions.

Thanks for the great report. Looking forward to dipping the hull into Disapointment next week.

Thanks for the report.

Never criticize someone until you walk a mile in their shoes....by then you'll be a mile away and they will be shoeless!
