Mississippi Head with our Son and Another Mini Quilt

We backpacked from Timberline Lodge to Paradise Park then up to Mississippi Head, over to Palmer and back down to the Lodge.  It was a little grueling for our son from Yuma, AZ, but he totally loved the route finding this morning.  This is looking to be a great bear grass year!Bear Grass FieldCharles’ tent last night.Charles Tent Paradise Park

There were about ten climbers heading out at around 1am.

Some of the areas were a bit steep and we were glad to have micro-spikes even though the guys split a pair and each only had one.

My quilt for this month’s PMQG mini:  “Accentuate the Negative”.  Maybe I didn’t actually do it correct, but all the problems with it were certainly accentuating the negative in my book!  It finishes up at 18″ x 20″.

    Everything in this post is fantastic. I’ve never even heard of bear grass but it’s beautiful. That Milky Way shot is amazing. And of course I love the quilt! Thanks for sharing.
