Excitement at Camp Muir

The Mount Rainier climbing blog doesn't mention volunteers specifically, as Mike Gauthier relays information about current climbing conditions and high altitude rescues, but it's engrossing reading--especially when you know that many of the rangers working so hard on the upper mountain are, in fact, full-time volunteers, who receive, for their efforts, only a small reimbursement for living expenses, some climbing gear, and a chance to spend the summer living on an extraordinary mountain.
