The North Cascades

My block of work steadily got bigger after the Sea kayaking section with a switch from a 7 day back packing course with Military Veterans to working the Mountain section (and then the practicum) section of the Instructors course. Amazingly after getting some pretty nasty weather in the sea section we then had 3 weeks of blue skies (unheard of in the North Cascades at this time of year) meaning that I didnt need to carry the umbrella or the new jacket that I bought especially for this work, oh well.
