Various scenes from my Goat Rocks 4th of July Weekend (Days 3 & 4): Following an amazing day atop Curtis Gilbert we decided to explore the Conrad glacier on it’s north aspect. The entire Conrad Creek drainage was incredibly picturesque. A wonderfully mellow off trail romp under broken clouds culminating with a plunge in Cold Lake. We returned to camp and continued the party. Slept in the following morning and hiked out.

Pano from atop Mt. Curtis Gilbert 8,184 ft. in the left horizon (SE) is Mt. Adams. Behind the Goat Rocks crest in the right horizon (NW) is the mighty Mt. Rainier.

Various scenes from my Goat Rocks 4th of July Weekend (Days 1 & 2): An amazing 4 day trip with friends and the pup. Shown here is our approach from the east side of the crest via the broad Conrad Meadows. We obtained a high camp well off the trail at Warm Lake. This was our home for the next three nights. We only saw two other hikers the entire weekend once we staked our ground. Between the five of us we packed in the kitchen sink and subsequently ate and drank well. The following day included a summit of Mt. Curtis Gilbert. Conditions were sunny and windy. The views of Adams and Rainier were unbelievable.

Various scenes from my Baker climb on June 30th - July 1st, 2013. An all out beautiful summit with very warm conditions.

Highlights from my Mt. Anderson climb. This peak is the hydrological center of the Olympic range. Drainages head away in all directions, to the Pacific in the west, to the Strait of Juan de Fuca in the North, & the Hood Canal in the East. Once again, an excellent trip with a great team and terrific conditions. Full photo set can be found here.

Highlights from my Mt. Constance climb (06/09/2013). An awesome team with terrific conditions. My favorite climb of the season thus far. The full set can be found here.

The good stuff… Summit pano from Mt. Constance (06-09-13). From left to right- in the south The Brothers, to the west the heart of the Olympic range, to the north low layer clouds conceal the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and on the far right to the east is glorious Mt. Baker.

I’ve been too tied up working hard and playing hard to post any accounts of my latest adventures. As promised, I’m going to play a bit of catch-up this evening and reveal some epic mountains shots.

Successful summit of Mt. Constance (7,756 ft). An epic day in the mountains with a fantastic team. That’s me- sunburn, smile, and all. To the south The Brothers surrounded by low land clouds accompanied by the rest of the Olympic range continuing westerly. Photo courtesy of Sue Shih.
