Ascent Team

While on a day hike of the Skyline Trail at Mt. Rainier National Park in July, I passed by an ascent team headed for the summit. I was carrying maybe about ten pounds of camera gear, reserve layers, water and lunch. These folks had packs with tents, survival gear, cooking utensils, sleeping bags, climbing ropes and hardware. Little wonder I passed them. I crossed a snowfield, looked back and got out the camera to capture this image.
