Hi- I'm not a student but I love mountains and geology and have a special fascination for glaciers. I'm a mountaineer mostly so I can spend time in glaciers.|
I think it all started when my Dad took me and my sister on a trip up Mt Rainier in 1969, the summer of love. We spent 4 days practicing crevasse rescue before summitting and I became hypnotized by the living, beautiful, and dangerous glacier. At 52, I am mountaineering again and spending as much time on the glacier as possible.
And anyone doing a field study that needs enthusiastic amateurs to help out, let me know.
So what a great idea for a community. I'm eager to learn.
