Recent alpenglow glory from not today. ๐Ÿ˜ All that heat and humidity has kept The Mountain fairly hidden this week. Gotta look closely to see MtRainier! | ๐Ÿ“ท by @alexbambrough #RainierWatch .

โ€œWater is fluid, soft and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.โ€ โ€” Lao Tzu .

Ingraham icefall, 4:30 am. One of the sportier crevasse crossings is depicted in this shotโ€”you can see where the route traverses an off-canter, partially unattached, narrow snowbridge over a 60+ foot deep crevasse... We used protection and caution here. The sharp, precipitous summit of Little Tahoma Peak is pictured to the right, backlit by the sunโ€™s first peek over the horizon. We had already been ascending for almost two hours at this point. I hardly took photos during the climb, unfortunately, because we were time-conscious and one is ill-advised to dawdle in heavily crevassed areas with overhead hazard, especially with a summit to reach. But, I do wish I could have captured how the rising sun painted the crests and chasms of glacier ice brilliant crimson! The beauty of it almost made me tear up. Last one from the climb, I swear! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Now Iโ€™m stuck in the Chicago airport, attempting to get home on standby....
Music and The Mountain: what a fantastic combination!

Every time we go out to photograph the Milky Way, serendipitous things happen. We drove to Mount Rainier National Park, we were the only ones there, it was raining, it was freezing, and the stars were not showing themselves. We even packed up to leave. However, once we drove down the pass a few miles, we saw the stars. We decided to head back up and see what we could find. With the invaluable help from @jetcityphotos and patience, I got a photo of the Milky Way I'm excited about! #milkyway #mountrainier #mountrainiernps #astrophotography #stars #milkywaychaser #mrnp #nightphotography #canon #canon5dmarkiv #sigma14mm #sigma #pnw #pnwisbest #aovpresets

Not a terribly difficult trail to Lake Christine, but finding the trail to Mt. Beljica was tough. After an hour of following errant foot print trails through the snow, we gave up on making it to the peak and headed back to Lake Christine for lunch. Still a bit early to do this one. #lakechristine #mrnp #glacierviewwilderness #washigntonexplored #pnw #thepnw #theoutbound #thegreatpnw #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #optoutside ๐ŸŒฒ #washington #photography #naturephotography #alpinelakes

No single mountain has ever came to me...so I always go to them.
Lunching at 10,000' today, I got to observe a practice crevasse rescue down on the Cowlitz Glacier, and have a super interesting conversation with the guy who builds @whiteknucklemonos and has skied 95 consecutive months!
June turns!! Month 31 for @brown_golf and I, month 8 for @zappoman. Saw some of the local wildlife, harvested the ๐ŸŒฝ, got a bit of sun, and played tour guide for about 4600โ€™ of vert! Not pictured: howling winds on the way up and a slow, sticky traverse on the way out. #turnsallyear #alpineadventures #mtrainier . . . . #backcountryskiing #mrnp #skiwithyourfriends #juneturns #skiuphill #volcanoskiing #cornharvest #marmots #pnwestisbest #cascadiaexplored #upperleftusa #skinningiswinning #skiergirl #myparadisehasnopalmtrees #glacierskiing #hotpow
Three weeks late, but Cayuse Pass is open! Count yourself lucky if you're coming to Packwood from Seattle. The scenery on this road is sublime.

Milky way last night. I did a quick process using the app #snapseed . My first time processing on my phone so may not be as nice as normal since I am still learning. Thanks #katehailey for the recommendation. This was taken at Tipsoo lake, last night. Had a great guide #jetcityphotos thanks again Matt. #canonusa #canon80d #canonphotography #PNW #milkyway #canon24mmpancake #canon24mm #mountrainiernationalpark #mrnp #nps #milkywaychasers #pnwoutdoors #pnwnights #nightsky #washington #kirklandphotographer

The lonely cycle Sometimes you see something and just wonder what the story behind it is. How did this tricycle get here? Who's was it? Was it an accident or on purpose?

In Georgia people drive hours and hike miles to see something like this. In Washington, this isn't even the destination. Just a roadside waterfall, no big deal. #carbonriver #mrnp #clearwaterwilderness #washigntonexplored #pnw #thepnw #theoutbound #thegreatpnw #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #optoutside ๐ŸŒฒ #washington #photography #naturephotography #river #summitlake #summitlaketrail #summitlakepeak
Stunning views from the top of Summit Lake Peak at about 5700ft. Ok, so the clouds completely blocked the view, but it's supposed to be really pretty up there. Should be able to see Mt. Rainier and several other volcanoes on clear days plus Summit Lake itself below. #carbonriver #mrnp #clearwaterwilderness #washigntonexplored #pnw #thepnw #theoutbound #thegreatpnw #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #optoutside ๐ŸŒฒ #washington #photography #naturephotography #river #summitlake #summitlaketrail #summitlakepeak
What do you do when the epics far off views are blocked by clouds? You focus on the the little things up close that you can see. Despite all the snow, the wildflowers were already starting to bloom. #carbonriver #mrnp #clearwaterwilderness #washigntonexplored #pnw #thepnw #theoutbound #thegreatpnw #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #optoutside ๐ŸŒฒ #washington #photography #naturephotography #river #summitlake #summitlaketrail #summitlakepeak #macrophotography #olympustg5 #olympuscamera #wildflowers
Summit Lake Trail started a little muddy with patchy snow, but then I quickly found much heavier snow that buried the trail. I was following footprints for a lot of sections trying to connect the dots between exposed trail sections. The clouds were low and made visibility basically zero at some points. #carbonriver #mrnp #clearwaterwilderness #washigntonexplored #pnw #thepnw #theoutbound #thegreatpnw #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #optoutside ๐ŸŒฒ #washington #photography #naturephotography #river #summitlake #summitlaketrail #summitlakepeak
Took a solo trip yesterday out to Summit Lake on the north side of Mt. Rainier. The trail is just outside the park. The Carbon River was beautiful turquoise blue. The forest road to the trailhead was rough, but fun in the truck. The lower half of the trail was pretty and not too challenging, the upper half was a different story though. More pics soon. ๐ŸŒฒ ๐ŸŒฒ ๐ŸŒฒ #carbonriver #mrnp #clearwaterwilderness #washigntonexplored #pnw #thepnw #theoutbound #thegreatpnw #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #optoutside ๐ŸŒฒ #washington #photography #naturephotography #river #summitlake #summitlaketrail #summitlakepeak
