Went to a side of Rainier I had not visited for an enjoyable early season ski tour.

Summer SolstASS Ultra

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Well, this certainly a delayed post.

I got out and photographed the local Summer SolstASS Ultra on Silver Star Mountain during…naturally the Summer Solstice.

I got to meet some Ultra Running local legends early in the morning: Bob Baker and  Joe Yela.

This ridge depicted in the above was part of the 50K segment.

Looking North was not a disappointment either:
