@B Dietrich; Welcome to the TreeBuzz forum! I know you've been a member for awhile, but this is the first post of yours that I remember seeing. Great timing on choosing to jump in, because I completely missed this thread going by when it first happened.
So thanks for reviving this great thread, and allowing other folks to see these amazing images. Thanks also to @CanadianStan for posting these images in the first place. What a memorable outing it must have been. The highlight of a lifetime, it seems to me. Best wishes.
Thanks for the welcome, Tim! Yes, I've been lurking here for years, and finally joined so I could open pictures and stuff. I felt motivated to finally post to ask Stan about his trip because it happened in (roughly) my neck of the woods!
Spectacular old Fir, and some great climbing.
I participated in way too much clear- cutting when I was young, but these days I get sick to my stomach when I even see a picture of it. A gawd awfull, evil practice that should be outlawed worldwide!
