I try and do something cool and memorable every week, and one of my favorite places to be is the mountains. A life blog of sorts for the next year showcasing some of the adventures and moments I've captured.
February 13th - Tasha and moi tackled Mailbox Peak, after looking at the weather's predicted 90% chance of precipitation. Ended up getting an entire day of sun and great views.
February 9th - Last night the Seattle area got its first "dump" of snow. This is what everyone was abandoning cars and freaking out about...
February 6th - A few of us went hiking around Snoqualmie/Cave Ridge, followed some snowshoe tracks that led up toward Snoqualmie Mountain. 10 degrees average that day, what an adventure.
January 30th - Me and Tash went up and hiked Mount Si for the first time, weather was perfect; cool, breezy, and snowing at the top. No view though, lots of fog. Ended up climbing the Haystack in all its snow and ice.
January 26th - Went down with some friends to Jules May in Seattle, followed by an early morning breakfast at Beth's Cafe, where I tried to eat a triple bypass, and failed.
January 24th - Me and Rob returned from the previous days adventures to make our way up Cave Ridge via a partially frozen melting waterfall stream route. Got above the fog for some incredible views and had to turn back from the summit as it was getting dark. Check out the full set HERE and a video of the ice climbing HERE
January 22nd - Went to Fujiyama Steak Grill and had some fantastic food.
January 15th - Continued to play mess about with some macro photos, got a bowl of crushed ice and a flashlight, and then decided to try out the technique which lead to the shot below.
January 2nd - Second day the year, and second hike of the year. Took a couple friends and my girlfriend Tasha to the top of Denny Mountain. Check out the full set on Flickr HERE
January 1st 2014 - Hiked up to Snow Lake in Snoqualmie Pass, first time I had ever been there in my life. The lake was frozen enough to walk on, so I trecked into the center of it, a very surreal experience. Check out the full set on Flickr HERE
