Enjoying the Last of Fall Sunshine with a Human Totem Pole

Snow |

When the rays of sunshine start to get that “low angle of autumn” and are harder and harder to find, it’s time to make the most of every sunny day the Northwest has to offer.

Last weekend when it was a dank, cold, foggy day in the maritime lowlands, friends with adventurous spirits headed to Mt. Adams, hiking 5 miles into the backcountry to enjoy a day of warm sunshine, glaciers and snowy meadows. There lingered a strong hint that snow season is nearly here and Jordanelles and Chair 5‘s will be replacing our Kimtahs and Rivas.

The odd-looking human totem pole is actually a rod for recording snow depth.

That’s me with Grateful Dead pose and hands stretched out on the right!
