Oh wow, thank you so much! I really really appreciate it.anne37 wrote:This might be one of my favorite trips reports ever both in terms of locale and story. I love Mount Daniel and seeing those pictures of the hard-to-get-to Spectacle Lake gave me goosebumps, but I have to say you really are an exceptional writer!

Well, I mean, you could put this on a book jacket and I would buy the book: "And I started to cry in that way you only do when you've grown up, not exactly at being sad, but at being acutely confronted by life's shape. At the strangeness of time. At the worlds you built with your brother at the edge of the lake."
I second this. Like reading a book with the most beautiful illustrations.anne37 wrote:This might be one of my favorite trips reports ever both in terms of locale and story. .............I have to say you really are an exceptional writer!
Thank you! There's so much to explore up there, the trouble's going to be wanting to go back too often.bobcat wrote:Just to echo the sentiments of others: beautiful prose, amazing photos! I hope you keep going back to those areas and posting here . . .
That's so nice to hear, thank you! It felt a little self-indulgent when I was writing it.UTurn wrote:Like reading a book with the most beautiful illustrations.
Awesome report Robin! Both the pics and the words were fantastic. It was so fun to see what it looks like with good weather and no smoke. It's kind of crazy that we didn't see Mt Rainier for the entire hike, when it's right there.
Thanks so much, Mike! It looks like you had a beautiful trip all the same, but yea: I felt super lucky to get the sun and clear skies I did.
