Wow, thanks all. That N. Side of Rainier was really a pretty, pretty place. A lot of times I only think of amazing trips in Washington being on the peaks and not as much on the volcanoes, but this...

Thanks all for checking it all. Can't wait until the weather breaks again!

Maybe Ben or Kyle will chime in about that. Since I'm not a splitty, I don't know much about the system.
AKbruin, glad the pics are distracting. LOL. It happens. I hope the writing (for those...

The climb crosses beneath the Burroughs. For added fun we climb to the top of the second Burroughs. A steep face drops from its summit. While Kyle and Ben take a higher line than I do, my hope is to...

I chase Kyle and Ben for the next several hours. I don’t catch them until I see them putting their boards together at approximately nine thousand to nine thousand five hundred feet on the Russell...

That's a good one! A lovely morning as well. Hopefully another great spring this year for similar adventures. We've had a few very stormy springs...but they were good for summer skiing, so not too...

:) Thanks for thinking so. For the past few years that's what I've been doing.

Thanks! I try and make TR's that are always worth reading. You can see all my TR's on http://cascadecrusades.org/ ...go to chronological. I do about 10-15 a year and have been for about 15 years now....

Thanks for checking this out all. Sorry for the lateness in sharing, but better late than never, right.

Day Four: Backbone Ridge weather day
Whatever hope we have for better weather isn't enough. An entire day of clouds and fog greet us the following morning. Everyone finds their own thing to do. My...

Preamble. This is an old Trip Report. It's from two years ago, but I still think it is awesome and would love to share it with everyone here. Enjoy!
The Isolation Traverse
June 4-10 , 2011
Super awesome. What an adventure it looks like. Crazy country.
11-29-2012, 12:07 PM
That was epic there! Under the snow was solid ice. We had to pull the snow away to get a good bite with the axe, which took some beating at times. No fun with 6k exposure. That pic was my fav from...

For a long time I carried only two lenses. This trip is from a year or two ago. At the time I carried a 17-35 2.8 Nikon and a 150 fixed 2.8 macro sigma. I now have two other lenses. I often leave the...

Adimmen, thanks for taking the time to read and check this out. Perhaps I've over saturated you guys ;-) with stoke this week. I'll get another TR up in a week or so. BTW, if you head that way, bring...

DAY FOUR - Park Creek returning to North Side of Goode
Smelling of smoke and sticky with pitch, we left our bivi site and began the long battle back to the North Side of Goode Mountain. There...
11-28-2012, 01:30 PM
There it was, finally, deep snow. We'd theorized it's existence the day before by predicting in our awe-infected brew-brah voices, "There will be powder up there, man!" Beneath the East Face, we put...

***Mt. Goode is a beast of a peak. This is the 3rd adventure I'm sharing this week. Enjoy.

Whenever I can please you guys, I am stoked. One things for sure, if you're not pleased, you'll let me know ;-)

Sklar, I live in Tacoma, so if you are around at some point, drop me a line and we'll chat about the cascades. tharhawk (at) gmail (dot) com
11-26-2012, 10:00 AM
Thanks all. I like to keep the stoke high. Great pics and a nice story are a lot of work...but the saved memories are worth it. Thanks for checking this one out, as well as the last story I put up a...

Our descent lived up to expectation and through giant shadows our ascent up Banshee Peak did as well. Dozens of small birds blew through a pass that lead to a gentle ridge and the summit of the peak....

Thanks for noticing the poetry. It is something I often enjoy, but rarely share.
11-21-2012, 10:50 AM
Ha...I can always point you in the direction of a few soulless ghouls ;-)
11-21-2012, 10:28 AM
LOL yes indeed there was a point that I could do that. Since I quit as a financial advisor 3.5 years ago, I haven't looked at a quote and certainly rarely look at the market now. The freedom has been...
11-20-2012, 06:21 PM
LOL. Yes it just may be. As my imagery gets better, I am selling imagery which pays most of the bills. For a glance at some of my imagery, see here: http://portfotolio.net/alpinestateofmind/albums

Thanks for reading everyone. It was a great adventure...part of a much bigger adventure actually. Perhaps I'll do a post on that at some point.
11-20-2012, 01:53 PM
The others arrived to the ridge crest and I waited for them to changeover. Brennan would down climb and Kyle would snowboard. I took the lead down the face and those first turns were wildly...

"Are you sure it goes," Kyle pondered out loud at me? My answer was in the affirmative, but he's learned to doubt me, especially when I say, "It's all good," or "It's cake" or any such variation....
11-20-2012, 01:49 PM
I haven't posted a story on TGR or any message board in a long time. You have all treated me well, so I will share one adventure from last year with everyone here.
PART I: Fernow, North Face via...
A few have skied Whatcom. It's a cool area where objectives are great...but a place where going with other options in mind isn't a bad idea. There are some unskied lines on that mountain that could...

You're a hell of an inspiration. Thank you so much for pushing through and doing what you love.

Happy to deliver guys! You can see more adventures like this...but mostly ski mountaineering adventures here: http://cascadecrusades.org/chronological/chronological.htm

Jqualls, I carried everything on my back. It worked well. I had about 15-20 lbs of camera gear as well. But...with a light tent and bag, you can go really light. For 2 days you should be able to get...
08-03-2012, 08:20 PM
Tele Bob. Nope, the LRT is totally clear. There are no logs down at all now. I did hear from my aunt that that was a real pain in the ass when it wasn't cleared.
Thanks for reading and viewing....

Elk Pass to Curly Creek
July 28-29, 2012
Summer has arrived. Yes, it is nearly august. Yes, I should’ve been hiking and...
:confused: Hey rocker6666, I'll be sure to do that. Thanks for the advice in advance next time! In fact, I'm sure you give that kind of armchair guidance to everyone you know. Keep up the good work...
Good times up at Muir yesterday. I was surprised to see the thick fog disappear and the sun come out!
09-26-2011, 12:48 PM
Kyle, I was glad I could join you on the 10 highest and thanks again for sharing the rest of your adventures abroad. It was a heck of a year.
05-22-2011, 09:20 AM
Nice Adam. Mt. Baker is a fun peak and one day I hope you'll return. It's a mountain that keeps on giving.
01-03-2011, 10:33 PM
White is great on weekdays, especially tree skiing. It isn't as steep as other resorts but, they make up for that with a laid back family-oriented attitude and the lack of crowds on...
01-03-2011, 07:23 PM
No, happy to help.
I used a flash but can't remember if it was in camera. I'll post the exif below.
On the editing, I didn't use selective desaturate. What I did was take down the vibrancy in...
01-03-2011, 06:04 PM
You have to punch the ISO down, push the speed down to around 20th of a second or less, which causes the background to blur, then you have to get real lucky and hold the camera super still to keep...
01-03-2011, 05:49 PM
I agree. I see good stuff from all walks of life on this website. Photos don't need to be spot on, neither does the writing to make something good to the viewer. It is the connection it makes that is...

Family and friends, people I like to ski with who are nice enough to pull up thier turns while I take a few images.
Glad you guys like the shots. It was a lot of fun taking images, even though it...

Since so many of you enjoyed the first chapter 'Face Shots, pow hits and a Happy Christmas' I thought I'd share another chapter from New Years. Thanks go to White Pass for being gracious hosts and...

This is Kyle's TR, but when it comes to camera stuff, I can answer it for him since I'm the one with the camera. I have a nikon d700 with two lenses, a 17-35 and a 150 fixed.
Thanks for taking me...
