spring time run off
Before the summit, clear view.
Incredible views, wildflowers, and pond along the iconic Pacific Crest Trail. Looks like a fantasy world.
Over West face of the Cascades
Most in our faces and glacier water swim, what a great day!
Summer at last! the Butterwort is blooming at Cape Disappointment State Park at the top of McKenzie Head on the Coastal Forest Loop!

Lovely hike, LOTS of people. Visited Colechuck to get a visual of Assgard Pass. Enjoyed a challenging day hike , loved the lake and was a bit intimated by the look of the Pass this time of year. It will be quite the challenge come July 9th when my little group of three hikers will attempt the steep slopes of this Pass. Clearly at this time of year there is still plenty of snow there. Encountered a large mountain goat and a not so large mountain goat at about 30 feet. That was a first! They were well behaved when left alone.
My friends and I like to summit at sunrise...This was our Granite Mtn Sunrise shot
My wife and I did Snow Lake before it got to much snow.
