Why I climb.

Glacial Stream

Basecamp views.

Shasta in sight.

At trails end.

Through rock and ice.

Smoke sunsets.

Smokier sunsets.

The great debate.

Gearing up.

Afternoon lusting.

Is this thing tied?

Second thoughts.

But it's so close.

Home base.

Summit discussions.

But why not!

Oh, it's windy.

Resting up for next pitch.

Finishing a windy traverse.

When it got steep, real quick.

Moments like this.

Happiness at 13,000 ft.

Early morning ascent.

Finding the earth's curve.

Morning smiles.

Dawn decisions on Mt. Shasta.

Morning sunrise over Northern CA.

Headlamp happenings.

Breakfast of champions.

Rocky Resort.


Master Chef.

Nestled among giants.


The descent.

Dirt roads and daring souls.

Till next time.
