loved the colours of the ice out on the trails the other day. we are in mid melt, freeze, melt again, refreeze. can be pretty. these were out on the trails in n. bivouac.
was sad to read that the baseball team i grew up with is having financial issues due to divorce. seems weird that the los angeles dodgers are in the middle of a nasty divorce. attended many a baseball game at dodger stadium growing up.
a few people are already starting up towards tackling denali this year. so the climbing season is getting underway. the paper reported that the rangers are getting basecamps set up. the main climbing season lasts 3 short months. only 55% who tried last year made the summit. 4 others died trying last year as well.
other news, some idiot doctor from boston fell into a trap and was arrested. apparently he was communicating online with a guy who offered up his 6 year old grandson for sex. this turned out to be a cop setting the guy up. that guy flew from boston to alaska in hopes of having sex with a 6 year old. there are some real freaks out there. they figure he'll get 20-30 years in prison for this.
well, on that pleasant note, i shall leave you for the day!
