This picture was taken on the way up Glacier Peak. If you stare into the picture long enough you will feel like you are soaring above the clouds – just like you are climbing. Of course, if you stare into the picture that long you probably should be doing something else.

• 2007 trip reports:

(In 2007, I saddled up to turning 50 with a little climbing project: Climb my 50th among Washington's Top 100 mountains. This meant climbing 27 Top 100 mountains in one summer. Here are some reports from that project.)

Snowfield Peak – a snowy start

Six Top 100 Peaks (plus Dumbell and Greenwood) in two days

Big Craggy and West Craggy – rambling in open country

Gardner and North Gardner Mountains – a blitz into a corner of the Cascades

Golden Horn and Tower Mountain – "territorial views..."

Cardinal/Emerald bike/hike – "Where's the bike?..."

Pasayten Peakbagging – trash talking all the way

The last in my "50 at 50" project: Raven Ridge and Hoodoo Peak - Finished!!!

Other stuff:

Climbs, hikes, and mountain bike rides Older pictures of some outings in the Cascade and Olympic Mountains of Washington state.

Stories of gonzo (well, sort of) mountaineering.

Great links to interesting and important stuff
