Re: Ice Mountain suggestion:
From: "Faden, Robert" <FADENR at si.edu>

I think that is a great idea.  It certainly was one of the most memorable
trips that I have been on with the BSW.  We went in June, 1989, if I recall
correctly.  The air temperature was about 90 whereas the thermometer
inserted in one of the cold vents read 38ºF!  Larry was indeed the leader of
the trip. Bob Faden
