Apparently starting a sunrise series this week, #2

Deep mangoes, oranges, and peaches of the rising sun reflecting off the clouds, off the water, and into my eyes •

Third time’s a charm. After two previous attempts, finally summited Mt. Adams this morning. And of course, upon reaching the second highest peak of the Pacific Northwest, waiting for me was a spectacular view of the highest. Fuck you, Mt. Rainier.

Happy Halloween & Bat Week!

Fun fact: Bats are not blind but they do see in the dark using a special skill called echolocation. Bats make noises and wait for the sound waves to bounce back off objects; if it doesn’t bounce back then they can safely fly forward. They can tell the distance of objects by how quickly the sound waves bounce back to them.

Today MacGyver campers put their creations to the test! Challenged with transporting the last remaining “burley bear” and “crusty caterpillar” to safety, campers worked together to build a carrier that could withstand a zip line journey to the island!

We visited many places in the trout lake valley area to gather fresh ingredients for our outdoor cooking, here the Mt. Chef campers picked fresh vegetables and seasonings for our dumplings!

Sunrise has always been one of my favorite times of the day, but especially, when I can catch a mountain’s shadow being cast across crepuscular rays of the sunrise ...
