This is a photo story of the hikes I've been to in the Northwest (mainly the Alpine Lakes area)

Tiger Mountain

Jan. 1, 2008

(left) wind-blown summit of West Tiger #3. (right) view of the magnificent Cascades on our way back down

Annette Lake

Nov. 22, 2007

the start of the trail was filled with little brooks like above - soon we got to snow level


(left) we had a view of Humpback mountain onroute. (right) due to strong winds the lake was very cold so we only stayed for a few minutes

Melakwa Lake

Aug. 26, 2007

we didn't make it to the top because all of us had an afternoon engagement

Denny Creek

Aug. 12, 2007

(left) the sliding rocks at the start of the trail had less water (so I was told) than usual. (right) waterfall on-route

Snow Lake

Aug. 5, 2007

this time the sun was out so we worked up a good sweat - some of us even jumped in for a swim (brrr!)


Jul. 29, 2007

there was still some snow around the lake and the water was very cold
