    A few shots from a ski ascent of Mt. Baker a few years ago. We don't have any snow at our ski areas yet, but I'm getting psyched (just ordered a new set of Back-country gear).

    Climbing into a white-out, but the weather prediction is good.

    Pretty good snow for the descent, but difficult flat light that hides irregularities in the slope Baker-6.9.13-(88).jpg Climbers practicing glacier travel.

    Neat set of images - scenes I will never see first hand without a helicopter. Thanks for sharing them and pray for snow so you can try out your new toys.

    Into the mist was what struck me on the first two. Great set.
