Summer fun in the Cascade mountains, August 2010

The view from inside a cravasse (hanging from a rope and slowly spinning!) Climbing out of a crevasse with ice tools and with crampons on my boots.
View of my campsite My climbing team taking a break above the clouds
View from the summit of Mt. Baker, Washington It's August, but beachwear won't do at these temperatures
Up the volcano At the crater
In Memoriam
My dear friend and frequent climbing companion, Kathi Ludwig, was tragically killed by a falling rock early on the morning of July 4, 2010, just a few minutes after this photo of us was taken, while we were climbing Mt. Shasta in northern California. She is sorely missed by all who knew her.
