The final ascent to the summit of Mt Saint Helens during Sunrise with Mt Adams off in the distance.
It was a very foggy day at Paradise. We were heading for Camp Muir and reached the top of the clouds. The summit was wearing a veil and hikers were making strenuous efforts to the camp ground.

Backpacking at Colchuck Lake is an unforgettable experience. Dragontail Peak towers above you and the lake shimmers below.
Stopping for a quick break as we near the top of Aasgard Pass.
