Gorge Creek falls was barely trickling today. Hopefully that means the water is still locked up in the snowpack.

A low avalanche risk day provided Villagers with the rare opportunity to safely snowshoe near the runout zone of an avalanche that had released earlier this winter!

I am always left in awe whenever I head in to the Cascade mountains to shoot these magnificent landscapes. After sitting in the cold for about half an hour or so I was able to capture Mount Shuksan in all if it’s glory under the night sky!

Days like this don’t come around that often, but we sure are glad when they do! That winning combination of clear blue skies, cold fresh powder, and solitude. Here, Odin samples the goods low on the northwest flanks of the North Twin Sister. Our Snowmobile Assisted Backcountry Skiing program is up and running! Check out our website for more details, and book your adventure into this gem of a range.  #twinsistersrange #bakerbackcountry #northcascades #backcountryskiing #snowmobileassistedskiing #bakermountainguides

Joy. 
That's one of my favorite emotions to capture during a wedding or elopement or really just in humans in general. I love photographing people in moments of true joy, where they forget about the camera or at least just don't care about it (which can take some work, and that is part of my job no matter how camera shy someone might start out feeling). I want to leave room during portraits for fun and joy to be part of the whole experience. Frolic through a field, laugh together, or like the photos @evan.explore captured at the end here- take a shot with all your friends (if you're sober there are plenty of other options too). Whatever brings you joy should also be part of your day and experience. It's a celebration. .

A lot more PNW in our summer schedule this year. And that isn't by accident. We'll be out here with Moonbeam this summer soaking up the cooler weather, inevitable rain, and beautiful wildflowers.

With record breaking rain and snowfall in many areas of Washington, the dark gray skies can make you feel downright gloomy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Is it too early to be thinking about spring and all the colors that will start to wash away the gray? What are some spring time activities you are looking forward to?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Still reminiscing about our winter climb of Eldorado a few years ago. .

Here is Zach on the summit. The summit of Eldorado is well known in the Cascades for its knife edge  finish. Basically the top of the mountain is a giant whale's back with a drop off on either side. .

In the winter, this changes a bit because of the snow accumulation. When we were there, a giant cornice had formed and we had to place protection to climb up the opposite side.
.

That's what is so great about climbing mountains. It's never the same climb twice. Different challenges, different obstacles, different views.

LOVE

I love the January sky and knowing it will change although unlike us.
I love watching people read.
I love photo booths.
I love writing letters and this is my letter. To the world that never wrote to me.
I love snow and briefly.
I love the first minutes in a warm room after stepping out of the cold.
I love time.
I love people.
I love people and my time away from them the most.
I love feeling nothing but relief during the chorus of a song.
I love space.
I love every planet.
I love the big unknowns but need to know who called or wrote, who’s coming—if they want the same things I do, if they want much less.
I love not loving Valentine’s Day.
I love how February is the shortest month.
I love that day in childhood when I thought I was someone else.
I love wondering how animals perceive our daily failures.
I love that we can fail at love and continue to live.
I love looking at paintings and being reminded I am alive.
I love Turner’s paintings and the sublime.
I love the coming of spring even in the most withholding March.
I love skipping anything casual—“hi, how are you, it’s been forever”—and getting straight to the center of pain. Or happiness.
I love opening a window in a room.
I love hearing anyone listen to Nina Simone.
I love Nina Simone.
I love how we can choose our own families.
I love that despite our mistakes this will end.
I love anyone who cannot say goodbye.

The view from the #ladyofthelake that make trips the length of #lakechelan a 55-mile long #fjord into the heart of the #lakechelanwilderness 🌲🏔. Check out the peaks of the #northcascades that is over 9000 ft! 😍 The lake is fed by several graciers, so, the water is freezing! 🥶 On this trip, we stopped and had lunch to visit the community of #stehekin that is only reachable by the #ferry or by private boats 🚤. If you’ve never been, I highly encourage you to visit #chelan and surrounding towns like Stehekin. Check out #chelanresortsuites in Airbnb for rooms with view of Lake Chelan outside your window and patio. 😊

Almost 40 years after the deadliest volcanic event in US history, Mount St. Helens and the surrounding area are still recovering🌋 •
Prior to the eruption, an earthquake below the mountain triggered the largest landslide in history as the north slope of the volcano collapsed and advanced over the landscape at over 100 mph. Without the weight of the mountain resisting pressure from the gases below, the volcano exploded with a force 500 times greater than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, leveling everything for an 8 mile radius.|
•
Today, trees can still be seen scattered across the landscape and blasted into the sides of hills.|

A memory popped up the other day. 🌌

Just over 2 years ago, Zach and I climbed El Dorado, a classic of the North Cascades. It was our first big-ish mountain together but we had both climbed it previously before. .

We planned it as a Valentine's Day trip but ended up going a week early because we had a perfect weather window. Which, if you live in Washington, you know you can't pass up.
.
Everything about the climb was perfect. We had the entire mountain to ourselves and there wasn't a cloud in sight the entire time. .

Here is a picture of me getting close to the summit, dressed as a giant blue marshmallow.

North Bend Triple ✔️: ⛰Mount Teneriffe ⛰ Mailbox Peak 🏔 Mount Si .

I had been convinced these trails were ‘too difficult’ to attempt by myself with such tough terrain and steep elevation. This idea held me back because I didn’t want to regret being too naive. But what I learned from these 3 is that you shouldn’t just let others define what you are capable of—you will never know unless you try

Low levels of snow in the Cascade foothills this year, but still gorgeous! Tried two new sports, both were too fun for words… fat tire biking in the snow and luging! 😊 Thank you @methow_trails for making such an amazing winter playground!

John Scurlock spent nine years flying throughout Washington State's North Cascade Range during the winter seasons in a home-built airplane, capturing the beauty of a place few have seen. This big, beautiful book is the breathtaking result. First edition, signed by the autho r/photographer; 2011; hardcover, 192 pages: $97 (shipping available) “The North Cascades are 11,000 square miles of nearly impenetrable mountains. They are America s last redoubt of true adventure. Cut with few roads and even fewer towns, and guarded by 700 glaciers and horrendous weather, the rugged North Cascades remain relatively unknown to most climbers. In winter, when the range is buried beneath up to 50 feet of snow, it is seen by even fewer still. Here, in this remarkable book of aerial photographs, John Scurlock conveys the majesty and mystery of this incredible range that for the rest of us would otherwise go as unseen as the dark side of the moon.” – Duane Raleigh, Publisher and Editor in Chief of Rock and Ice Magazine, Carbondale, CO

Day 841: When the clouds clear for one stunning moment and your favorite mountain makes a distant appearance even still trying to hide behind the sun.

There’s not a cloud in the sky this morning so naturally I get to spend the day in an office. So here’s a Marmot enjoying the summer sun and chomping on some wildflowers.

Never, not once in my childhood, did an adult inform me that throwing bombs at snow from a helicopter was a viable career option. For this my generation will destroy the paper napkins, fine China sets and fast casual dining that you have held so dear.

We feel happier since we started improving our sustainability! 😄
☀️
Not like we weren’t happy before we started the significant improvements, but living a more sustainable life definitely makes us even more happy 😊 ☀️
I think it’s a combination of several things. We eat healthier food and that makes both our body and mind feel better. We’re wasting less food and things and that makes us feel proud. We eat out less and cook more foods from scratch and that makes us feel satisfied. Most importantly, we feel happier because we know we make a positive contribution for a better world 🌎 ☀️
We love the outdoors, so it’s such a great feeling to have knowing that we are taking concrete actions to protect them.
☀️
We’re not even close from being perfect, but we believe that every little things count and they matter. Even if there’s *only* one of you who started improving sustainability after following our journey, that’s a WIN.
☀️
What’s the most recent win you have on your sustainability journey?
One of them would be making homemade vegan tortilla from scratch for me! 😋
📸: one of the toughest & most beautiful solo hikes I’ve ever done!

Well heck how time has flown by! Realized it’s been a few months since I’ve posted. Adventures haven’t happened since winter hit us and to be honest, it gets me down. I miss the mountains so much. Little throwback to what I’m excited for in the coming year!
