Fellow soldiers held a salute.  Passengers in the terminal held their silence, not [...]

Sometimes getting to camp means going the extra mile -uphill.  Four thousand feet uphill.  It took six hours and six miles of backpacking to reach the base of the Sahale Glacier, in the North Cascades National Park.  The last quarter mile was the steepest.  If the mountain had a middle finger, the final boulder field below the [...]
