This is a reprocess of a shot taken on a week-long backpacking trip in the Yukon in 2014.

This is the pack I carried to the mountains when I was young in the 1970s. I have no idea of what it weighed. The yellow roll on top was my mattress for sleeping on snow: a sheet of bubble plastic to which I had taped reflective foil on both sides. It weighed next to nothing and kept the cold off my back.

Honestly....just between us...I don't really like to hike. "It's all about the journey" - BS. For me its all about the capturing the scenery and rounding that last bend to be back in my car with heated seats and a triple mocha. I've shaved ounces off my hiking kit to make room for more not always light camera gear.

A few years ago another photographer here in WA wouldn't tell me where he got a particular shot in a place called the Enchantments. I had a rough idea but decided to hike in and see if I could find the spot. Enchantments is the 8th toughest day hike in the country. Approx 7,000 ft of climb total and a relentless descent on the other end. I started at 5am with a heavy pack full of every lens I owned. I finished at 11pm with bloody feet and collapsed at the other ending trailhead. Its a point to point hike so I had to hitchhike miles back to my car at the starting trailhead.

But I found the spot and the shot. I got back into the closest town Leavenworth that night, thinking about the beer I had promised myself. Instead I went to a mini mart, got the largest bag of chips and biggest red bull and drove back to Seattle. Two weeks later, I wanted to go back in better light.

Now I go back every year. I've done it in snow up to my thighs, ice, bad weather, good weather etc. Its captivating.

Beautiful shots! :-D
The Enchantments thru-hike is something I strive to do someday soon - very jealous... Love your Colchuck photos as well, I'll be camping in the area next weekend, and I'll be hitting that place up again!

My favorite hike! Pretty gnarly to go to during the winter due to high avalanche risk throughout the trail, but as soon as that clears up from snow, I'm always here! Went up one night, and then 5 days later because a friend wanted to see Snow Lake with snow still on it... Crazy how fast the ice had melted away on the lake! Too bad I was short on time each trip, next time I'll venture down into the basin :-D

Beautifully photographed.
Magnificent scenery indeed.
It's icing on the cake when your wife's there too.
Mine wasn't upto that so unfortunately stayed home.
Treasured moments for you both.

Thank you. My wife joining me on my backpacking trips is a somewhat new phenomena, it started about 3 years ago. We've been to the Sierra a number of times and are heading to Denali next month.

A Cascades morning
I wonder if anyone here knows the name of this mountain that looks like a dog with its ears perked up listening to something.

A hiker rests
When a German acquaintance's son visited Seattle while I was working there, I took him out to see the mountains.
