MOUNTAIN   PHOTOGRAPHS
Winter High Camp on the Eldorado Glacier, North Cascades, WA.

I have spent many summers and holidays backpacking and hiking and climbing. Most of this has been in the rugged North Cascades and Olympics of Washington, but I have also trekked among the mountains of California, Wyoming, British Columbia, Switzerland, and France. Below are some of my photos from my many mountain adventures.

My climbing trip reports also contain hundreds more photos of mountain scenery. You can access these reports via the links on the left.
