Telephoto from summit of Whatcom Pk. Base camp at bottom center. Crevassed area just above is narrow tongue of Challenger Glacier below Perfect Pass. (Scan from Kodachrome Slide taken in 1965)

Thanks Randy. Fortunate I guess. I have seen Kodachrome slides with fungus on them, but I have encountered virtually none, without special care. Long ago I learned that Kodachrome was by far the best for long term preservation over Extachrome, Anscochrome, Agfachrome, etc. type film. (Also higher resolution) The former was a reversal film using silver for blacks (permanant), and built-in dyes for color, while the latter used dye transfer even for blacks. Very different types of film.

For a gorgeous photo from same place under very different conditions see photo by M. Bollino: He had fair weather, sun, and blue sky!

On SW side of Goode Mtn looking at summit massive, which is much steeper up than it looks here. Route is across talus field center right to gully, which leads upward and left to small notch just below & right of apparent summit. No aid needed up to that point.

Really Great shot!


Good luck

The heartiest greetings, Christian
