Richard and all. I keep thinking about this trip. What a great group of wonderful folks! I had a thought rolleyes.gif biggrin.gif . I was thinking that maybe we could do this again next year around the same time. A NWH/Ed scramble GTG. Maybe not the exact group of folks but maybe some folks who didn't make it will be able to join, too. In my heart I believe that Ed wanted us to all get together. We could honor him every year with a scramble up something. It would keep memories of him alive. If it works out maybe the register could be a part of it too. I don't know... just an idea. I think it would be cool. Thoughts? Meanwhile, I would be honored to be able to get out with any of you again! OK I will shut up now winksmile.gif

That's why really liked the idea of a memorial trip. Ed's the catalyst of getting everyone together. If I can swing it, I think it'd be cool to take Ed's summit register to Edd Mountain. I wouldn't leave it there because Edds Mountain is at Sherman Pass, but what I'd do is, I'd sit & have lunch with Ed. Then I'd put him back in the truck with me and bring him back to the Cascades.

Your route did sound fun. If I ever go back, I'll make a point to try it embarassedlaugh.gif

Likewise. It was a fun experience and I'm looking forward to doing it again. I like Tazz's idea!

I agree whole Heartedly! Quark, I think thats a very creative and wonderful idea, I can't wait to read the report. actionbetty, I was always a fan of yours and meeting you in person was a real stich, I can't wait to get out on another trip with you, or anyone else for that matter. What I got out of every one that went on the trip, was their uniqueness and the different personalities. Together we all had a great time of sharing ourselves with each other in our own unique ways. What Great Fun! Ed's Brother Rick, "NEXT YEAR!!!" How about next week or next month or even October, times a flying and there's no time like Now! I know from my short conversations with you that you would fit in well here and you are always welcomed to join us. As far as I'm concerned the sooner the better and I will be looking forward to that day, Brother! Richard,

I'm really kicking myself hard for not going now. Looks like you guy's had a special time in an awesome area. Thanks to all. I had a hard time sharing at the memorial service but one thing I would add is Ed's never ending patiences. Those of you that hiked with Ed know how much energy he had. Well, I have a fairly slow pace and thats one of the reasons I solo so often. But Ed never did complain, he would just snap some shots or whatever till I would catch up. Anyway, I need to get over that so I can get out on some hikes with some of you. I think you are a great group that share the same passion and love for the mountain and it was good meeting some of you at the service. Thanks again for carrying on the memory of EDD. Great photos also. up.gif

Long since I've been amongst majestic peaks nor side mirrored lakes where awe so speaks. Blanketed valleys the dawn awakes and blinking stars to fade. My soul is called to see these things, the Hand of God has made.

Well, I admit, PIB ain't the best lookin broad around. Took me about 2 years before I quit taking different routes than her, but she ain't so bad oncet you get used to her. She grows on you after awhile. Sorta like a big ole wart.

It never ceases to amaze me what spectacular country there is in this state, most of which I haven't seen. What a great initial resting spot for Ed's register. up.gif up.gif

I retrieved the summit register today and it's currently in my back yard with a view of the South Fork of the Snoqualmie. (Seemed a better place than in my garage.) Trip Report/pics tomorrow/Tuesday. My next trip won't be until August 31 with TNAB so if someone wants to take it somewhere more interesting than Tinkham Peak (I think that's TNAB's destination on the 31st) let me know. I'll probably move the register up into Twin Falls State Park one night this week if nobody claims it. BTW: I can't think of a better place for the register to have been placed than Big Snow. Awesome trip.
