    Congrats on your first post! Mind you don't become one of those cronic posters though with hundreds of posts to your credit and yet little actually said... oh... wait...

    I'm so glad that everyone had such a great time too. I guess you had to be there to really get a feel for all the positive energy that was flowing, but I think everyone's posts can sort of give you an idea of what a great experience it was for all of us.



    Sorry Marty, I know you wanted to have the last word. I'll make it up to you by NOT posting on your 15min of fame thread!

    Yeah, I got my snowshoes crossed and fell backwards into Ridgewalker. We then both took the Nestea plunge into the snow. Marc saw we were having fun and did his own mock wipeout!

    Sorry again about that, Ridgewalker!

    By the way, my hiker high is now three days old. Hope it never ends!

    Regards,

    No problem sir (you've reinsituted me to call people sir, and its a good thing). Peter, I'm glad to have joined you on your climb, and also feel free to make the loner climber a desktop background. The hike is a pricless memory captured in time with the photos. For some reason You Tube has not be nice to me and I can't load the video properly

    Abster, sometimes a photo have a soothing effect, I say it's a beautiful thing!

    Glen Cliff Trail

    "Me too, me too!" I have shared maintenance of the GCT with Steve for the past few years (8#?). I do more of the brushing, Steve more of the water bars and blow downs. Speaking of which, is there anything that needs our attention at the moment (i.e., blow downs)? I like to go up around this time of year to get a better reach from the snowpack for brushing. With the southern exposure, this trail veges in really fast.

    Good choice for a final NH4 summit (and trail); congrats, MT! I made the same choice for my final NH4 in November 1968, a mere 38+ years ago.

    Glencliff is a BEAUTIFUL trail! No blowdowns that I remember, oh wait, one fat one, about 6-8 inches, easy to get around or over (walker's choice). Don't know how high it will be off the ground when the snow's gone.

    You two have done a tremendous job on that trail--thank you for helping to make my 48th that much more pleasurable.

    If you can drag it out two one more day, it will be the weekend and you can do it again! That's how I always try to work it.

    Also, I'm glad everyone kept talking about the "Lone Hiker" picture. The first time I viewed the picture- in slideshow mode- I couldn't for the life of me find the lone hiker. I figured he blended in with the white expanse. Today I went back to try again. Again I couldn't see anyone, so I took it off slideshow mode and clicked on the pic to see it blown up, there he is! Cropped off to the right. It is a cool one. I had had "leaving the peak" as my background, but swapped it out for "Gorgeous Walking". Lots of good ones.

    Those are great, RnR. It's good to relive it one more time.

    Bumped into Marty today, and his reminiscing about this hike made me look it up. Unbelievable memory, Marty! Great to see you and LarryD. So glad you and I are still out there.

    Hey Early Bird,

    Great seeing you and your family today. So glad you remembered me. I just went back and read this entire TR. What an awesome hike with such a great group. Hope our paths cross again soon and often.

    I did! There is nothing not to love. It was my nieces' first time above treeline. One was so sore she skipped school the next day, but loved it. Nice meeting you too.
