Lake Tahoe Cashmere Mountain

January 15 - 21, 2008
The family elected to rent a cabin at Lake Tahoe for an after Christmas gathering.  We drove first to San Francisco to see Phil and Tasha and then followed them east to the cabin.   (Album not available)
July 12 - 13 , 2008
The bugs were simply horrendous at Lake Caroline, where our permit obliged us to camp.  Straight forward scramble around the north side of the peak with great views of the Stuart Range .  (Album)
Gold Basin - Mountain Loop Highway Hadley Peak
August 5 - 6, 2008
A quick mid-week trip when we both had some time off from work to a nice riverside campground, east of Granite Falls on the Mountain Loop Highway. Very warm and sunny.
August 23 - 24, 2008
Hadley Peak is the highest point on Chowder Ridge.  Approaching from the north on Skyline Divide brings phenominal views of Mt.'s Baker and Shuksan almost from the start.  Best view of Baker's heavily glaciated north face.   (Album)
Wedding on Kauai Raven Ridge
September 4 - 11, 2008
Philip and Tasha decided that they wanted a small wedding, just the family and picked a perfectly wondeful spot on the north shore of Kauai to do it.   Seven days, a house on the beach and a wedding.  Voted best vacation ever!   (Album)
October 4 - 5 , 2008
Raven Ridge runs W - E from Pt. 8580 (Libby Peak) to Pt. 8572 (Corax Peak) above Libby and Crater Lakes.  I thought the ridge interesting when I first saw it from Hoodoo Peak two years prior.  Poor weather but great fun.     (Album)
Lost Creek Ridge
November 23 , 2008
A very nice early winter trip, just after the first real snow of the season.  Access from Darrington is usually pretty good until later in winter and once above Bingley Gap  This is a very scenic ridge walk with great views of Glacier Peak.   (Album)
