Ancient & Dusty Lakes - Quincy Camano Island State Park

April 11 - 12, 2009
The Ancient Lakes area in eastern Washington was suggested as a good early season backpack.  Beautiful coulee country and very diferent from the Cascades which at this point in the year are still buried under many feet of snow.  (Album)
April 29 - 30, 2009
Oliver who isn't the type of dog that makes any effort to stay clean anyway, looks particularly pleased with himself after a weekend of rooting around in everything smelly he could find along the beach.  (Album)
Eightmile Mountain Upper Enchantments Basin
June 20 - 21, 2009
Great trail leads quickly to Eightmile Lake and good camping.  The scramble around the north side of the lake goes well but climbing through the lower forested slopes requires much more energy and time than we guessed.  (Album)
July 26 - 30, 2009
Five days in the Enchantments   On the second day we scrambled from Little Annapurna to the peaks immediately SE of Dragontail.   This picture is from East Dragontail, looking down on the Witch's Tower.   (Album)
Wing Lake from Black Peak Golden Gate Bridge - Marshall's Beach
August 8 & 9, 2009
After summitting this rugged and beautiful peak in the North Cascades, we took advantage of a break in the clouds on the way down to catch this view of the glacial green waters of Wing Lake. (Album)
November 20 - 23, 2009
A light rain storm the night before had left the air clear and clean as I walked the Coastal Trail from Baker to Marshall's Beach. Breaking surf, clouds, blue sky and the bridge partially in the sun made for a very pretty shot. (Album)
