This Rainier National Park Travelogue let climbers record their climbs. They included:
• The Sky-Line Trail — Saddle Horse
Summit Climb — afoot
Nisqually Glacier Trip — afoot
Paradise-Stevens Glacier Trip — afoot
Muir Camp Trip — afoot.
Pinnacle Peak Climb — afoot.

This travelogue is dated 1923 (over 80 years ago), the same year the first baseball game was played at Yankee Stadium. 

I trust there will still be climbers 80 years from now in 2094.
