Northwest alpine love: Mount Rainier/Little Tahoma.

It's Portland Alpine Fest this week-- a week full of speakers, films, clinics, etc. It's hosted by the Mazamas, a local climbing club that teaches people (including me) how to climb mountains. I'm skipping tonight's event due to a upper respiratory affliction, however plan on taking part the next couple of days. Tonight, I'll just long for the alpine sunrises of summer.
