Thoughts on the move. ° I have a LOT of time to think, internally and aloud, during my hikes and climbs. I was recently asked what I think about...and it's hard to pinpoint. In terms of single thought topics, introspection probably carries the most heft. An uncontrolled stream of consciousness. My quirks, troubles, faults. There's plenty of the first and third. What can I do to be better? What have I done incorrectly? Whom have I wronged? Why have I done or acted a certain way? Often, my thoughts repeat...a single phrase, sentence, or word is stuck on repeat. Sometimes there is a reason it's stuck. Other times, nothing, my brain simply trips over, and over, and over; this occurs most frequently during high exertion stints. ° Numbers are constantly running through as well. How many people, up and down, have I encountered? How many switchbacks have been through? How fast am I moving? I dislike seeing distance markers if I'm in a groove... I'll immediately ruminate of how much farther or how much longer there is to go, the math is easy. ° Most of all isn't a thought though. Most of the time is spent focusing on my breath and my immediate surroundings. Being out is my moving meditation. I focus on something. I experience everything around me without judgment or even acknowledgement. There are sights and places that stop that though. Those are what I capture in a camera. I'll move for hours at a time without a concerted thought or peek at the time or using a camera. 14 hours days can pass in an instant, yet conscious thought at the day lets it all unravel, even the single steps. ° 📸 June 2018 📍 North Cascades National Park ° ° ° #Hozomeen #northCascades #NorthCascadesNationalPark #NCNP #NPS #FindYourPark #Washington #PNW #PacificNorthwest #PNWonderland #nikon #NikonD3400 #WildernessCulture #HikingCulture #igPacificNorthwest #IGnorthwest #backpacking #camping #wilderness #mountains #Cascades #CascadiaExplored
Thanks, USA for this wicked view of your North Cascades #💚 #northcascades #hozomeen
If you get a chance take a day or two and hike the #skylinetrail out to #hozomeen in #manningpark awesome views as you go along the tops of all the mountains you see in the photo. #backpacking
Happy 102nd Birthday to America's Best Idea - The National Park Service! @nationalparkservice Hozomeen Mountain over Ross Lake is an absolutely unmistakeable peak of the North Cascades. While I wish it had been a clearer day (this year's theme sadly appears to be smoke, more smoke, and even more smoke) I think it's still damn striking. 🏞️
We paddled all the way to Canada, in the smoke and the haze. The only road in to this remote area had been closed due to fire so the boarder was left wide open and we had Canada to ourselves. So what do you do at an unsecured boarder? Drink beer of course! #canadaclosed #hozomeen #skagitvalley #rosslake
Day 2 of 4; 21 total miles RT for the day from camp to peak 5000ft elevation gain WITH 4400ft of that gain within a 4.7 mile span. Queen of the mountain. Breathtaking. 🙋🏼‍♀️🏔🙌🏽🇺🇸 #desolationpeak #hozomeen #pnw #northcascadesnationalpark #america
"Everything’ll be all right, desolation is desolation everywhere and desolation is all we got and desolation aint so bad." -Jack Kerouac, Desolation Angels 🏔 i cant believe i really did this. i don't yet understand how to begin describing this experience. it truly was so desolate and starved. 🏔 #1956 #firelookout #kerouac #jackkerouac #desolationangels #desolationpeak #desolation #wildfire #beatnik #hozomeen #thevoid #rosslake #northcascades #northcascadesnationalpark #rosslakenationalrecreationarea #solobackpacker #womenwhoexplore #starvationridge #paddlepacking #pnw #pnwonderland #outside #wildwest
I spent my past weekend hiking to the top of mountains in Manning Park! These trips literally feed my art. 💚 While I'm currently addicted to sleeping in the alpine, reaching it has required a lot of forest hiking. This has greatly influenced my latest tree woman piece - which I'm excited to share soon! 💚 That's a stunning view of the double-summited peak of Hozomeen Mountain, from atop Lone Goat Mountain (with Andre for scale 😉)! 💚 #manningpark #hozomeen #hozomeenmountain #cascaderange #northcascades #mountainlife #peak #adventurelife #breathtakingview #beautifulbc
Hopefully one day we'll reach this guy... the epic Hozomeen mountain. ⛰

Just spent 12 days in the backcountry with these magical humans - and tonight's my last night in the North Cascades this summer. Completely enriched by this entire community and this place. Farewell for now! #fergaliciousglaciersharks
The jagged peaks of Hozomeen Mountain, located just a few miles south of the US-Canada border in the North Cascades of Washington. This image of the Milky Way over Hozomeen was photographed from Manning Park on the Canadian side of the border. This year it seems the wildflowers in Manning are blooming a bit later compared to last year. Up in the sub-alpine meadows, the Indian Paintbrush was just starting to bloom when I went hiking here during the mid-July New Moon. It was a gorgeous night, despite the hordes of mosquitoes! __ #manningpark #hozomeenmountain #milkywaychasers #nightscaper #milkywaygalaxy #northcascades #bcparks #hikebc #vancouvertrails #vancityvibe #outdoorvancouver #hikesnearvancouver #night_excl #night_shots #night_shooterz #nightscape #explorebc #beautifulbc #hozomeen #pnwonderland #wildflowers #stargazing

Went exploring in E.C. Manning Provincial Park. Got to within a mile or so of the border and this fascinating view of Hozomeen Mountain. Anyone know what the mountain in the distance is??? • • • • • • #northcascades #hike #hiking #backcountry #mountain #peak #manningpark #provincialpark #wildplaces #offthebeatenpath #backpacking #pasaytenwilderness #hozomeen

Trail Tip Tuesday: if at first you don’t succeed, try try again!!! Last year I was pretty disappointed when our kayak camping trip to Desolation Peak went bust due to wildfire smoke, but what a difference a year makes. Last year we couldn’t see across the lake... this year? Low water levels but perfect visibility! Hard to believe this is the same place! 😱👍 . . . . #rosslake #rosslakenationalrecreationarea #hozomeen #neverstopexploring #artofvisuals #back40hikes #cascadiaexplored #discoverpnw #exploremore #getoutside #igwashington #livewashington #nature #ourpnw #ourwild #optoutside #pnw #upperleftusa #washingtonoutdoors #washingtontrails #wanderwashington
I often feel a sense of urgency that I need to get out and shoot more so I can have more to share. Meanwhile I'm sitting on a ton of old content. From now on I'm gonna really start digging in the archives and posting some of the things that have been overlooked. Starting with this beast we got to witness while in Manning Park last September!
Grad student @wingtrip went to Hozomeen campground with wildlife biologists from North Cascades and Mount Rainier National parks to monitor a maternal colony of bats. They tested for white nose syndrome is a fungus which is more common on the east coast and has killed over 5 million bats. There have only been two reported detections in Washington and biologists are proactively monitoring colonies. 📸: @wingtrip
More, better images from my trip to #hozomeen to help #nps #wildlifebiologists with some #bat work. These folks were working to check for any signs of #whitenosesyndrome in this #maternal colony (hence the #tyveksuits ). The first image is of a #myotisyumanensis before release. The second is the crew working on a bat. The third, the #harptrap , which is a specialized trap for bats (look at that pile of bats in the corner). It was really fascinating to help with this work!
Dynafit was the original ski touring binding. For those choosing to go light and fast in the mountains. Titanium toe piece. NE Face of Hozomeen first descent. Dr. Sky in his element, out there calculating the risk. Did you calculate the hot rocks above my head shedding snow? Giver don’t skidder. This is what we live for. Finding the unskied line.

Check out Jagged Ridge Imaging to see John Scurlock's amazing aerial photography. From John: Consider the north face of Hozomeen’s south peak - an enigma like no other part of the mountain. Difficult to see, even from the air, and even then, withholding its secrets unless a bit of snow pulls the curtain aside for a bit. It’s right up there as one of the most difficult mountain faces I’ve photographed, due to its close proximity to the north peak. #ncascades #northcascades #pasaytenwilderness #hozomeen #aerialphotography #northcascadesnationalpark #noca50 #jaggedridgeimaging

Check out John Scurlocks instagram. Amazing aerial photos of all the lines you want ski and climb. PNW to Coast mountains and beyond. P: @john_scurlock @jaggedridgeimaging # Skied this Face with Sky Sjue and Drew Tabke a few years ago. What a ride. #Hozomeen #steepskimountaineering #dreamline
To photograph the upper northeast face of Hozomeen’s north peak requires careful maneuvering close against the international border. This image comes from a flight conducted on a late December afternoon in 2010. The remnants of storm clouds are pushing against the mountain’s west face but clearer weather is seen beyond its left shoulder. #aerialphotography #northcascades #climbing #skiing #flying #mountains #washingtonstate #pasaytenwilderness #jaggedridgeimaging #hozomeen
I once knew a marine who loved Hootie and The Blowfish. Sometimes, you can watch the otters cross Water Street right here at Desolation and Hozomeen . . . . . #porttownsend #traveler #pnw #seen #desolation #hozomeen #moments #artwalk #98368 #smalltown #passiveaggressive #wastate #Olympicpeninsula #books #rambling #writers #differentworlds #iwontdance #youwontsing #actors #word #implied #life #porttownsendwa #war #rent

North Hozomeen! Zorro wall on the left profile, NE Buttress on the right skyline. The former has been climbed once and sounds scary but I can recommend the latter as a scenic romp. . . #northcascades #hozomeen #skagitvalley
Hozomeen Mountain (2,460 m, or 8,071 ft). The name means "sharp", "like a sharp knife". The first ascent of the North Peak (on the picture) happened in 1904. The South Peak, though being lower, was climbed 43 years later, in 1947, due to its north face going vertical for 304,8 m. #mountains_around #hozomeen #hozomeenmountain #usa #cascaderange #northcascades #mounts #mountains #peak #summit #mountain #mount #travelgram #explorer #natureshots #mountainview #mountainlove #mountainscape #mountainviews   #mountaingram #mountaineering #mountainlovers #mountainworld #mountainclimbing #mountainphotography #adventurelife #exploremore #amazingview #MOUNTAIN_FACT #breathtakingview Photo by @happy_hik_ing

"Hozomeen, Hozomeen, the most mournful mountain I've ever seen” - J. Kerouac The first ascent of Hozomeen South was done by ... ... you guessed it, Fred Beckey in 1947. RIP Fred (1923 - 2017). #hozomeen #northcascades #northcascadesnationalpark #fredbeckey
Is it a bad sign when the Eye of Sauron wakes you up in the morning? We thought not and enjoyed our coffee. #northcascades #hozomeen #sauron #sunrise
Honestly, there 'snow way this trip could have been better 🌨⛄🏔

Day 63. Hozomeen Lake to Ross Lake. 2017-09-10 . . "Hozomeen, Hozomeen, the most mournful mountain I've ever seen." - Kerouac.

Day 63 9/10/17: Hiked a few short miles to Ross Lake to catch our water taxi to take us back to the hwy 20 Trailhead to meet my Aunt Karen for pick up. Still can't believe we are finished. How did it go by so fast? Wasn't I just looking down into Crater Lake? Or walking across the Bridge of the Gods? . . . . . . . #hozomeen #hozomeenlake #rosslake #rosslakerecreationarea #finalday #adventurecomplete #day63 #1000milesectionhike #cascadiakr
Day 62 9/9/17: Made it to Hozomeen Lake in Ross Lake National Recreation Area. Our final night of this grand adventure. Hozomeen is one of my favorite to sit and stare it. It looks just like the a spiraling castle of rock that I would have as my home if I were in a fairy tale. We also saw a momma black bear and her cub foraging near our campsite and it was the cutest, most awesome thing to see on our last night. . . . . . . #hozomeenlake #hozomeen #rosslake #rosslakenationalrecreationarea #hiking #backpacking #1000milesectionhike #beebsandbula #mountains #nature #optoutside #dontmakemeleave

The view from the Desolation Peak fire lookout, two weeks ago. The ranger who's there this summer, who illustrated children's books in the 80s, says he's been doing the occasional doodle in the logbook.
A few more pics from a recent patrol. I'm pretty lucky to work with two other professionals, that are also friends, in some pretty awesome country. Beverages kept cool by @yeti #hopper30 . #pnw #protectingtheresource #rosslake #northcascadesnationalpark #hozomeen #gamewarden
