Summary

South Sister

Shirley, George, and Blondie on the summit of South Sister with Middle (left) and North Sisters in the background (Oct. 2001).

Shirley and I tried South Sister once before but finally succeeded on October 6, 2001. This was while our friend George was visiting us from New Jersey. A fun day out with our brand new dog. I think we also came back later in the fall & tried it again for shits & giggles…it’s been a while though so I’m not really sure.
