On Feb. 25th 2012, a small group of friends and family gathered in Anacortes, Washington to celebrate the 100th birthday of Wolf Bauer. Wolf immigrated with his family to the US in 1925 and began a long distinguished career that included pioneering work in mountaineering, search and rescue, kayaking, and shoreline preservation. For more information about the century-long life of Wolf and his contributions to outdoor life in the Pacific Northwest, please look for "CRAGS, EDDIES & RIPRAP: The Sound Country Memoir of Wolf Bauer" by Wolf Bauer and Lynn Hyde. Also go to topographmedia.com to view a documentary on the early history of the MRA called "Mountains Don't Care, But WE Do!".
