Summit Mt. Shuksan

    Newer Older

    August 16, 1992 North Cascades National Park

    Me on the summit of Mt. Shuksan in the North Cascades of Washington. Mt. Baker is in the background and is one of the five dormant volcanoes in Washington State.

    Scanned from a 35mm negative using a Pentax PZ-10 camera, Pentax FA 28-80mm f/3.5-4.7 lens.

    Lights in my hometown, mllehmann, and 8 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Whoa, what an awesome photograph! Look at that handsome man grinning and giving the thumbs up . . . and no wonder! Can't imagine how fantastic that must feel to be standing at the summit, having made that climb. It has to be emotional - I think I would be weeping, looking around at that magnificent view from that vantage point . . . but maybe guys don't do that stuff. : ) All three shots are incredible! Do you still climb, Matt?

      Thanks Shari! I haven't climb since 2001 in Washington State the last time I was there. Health problems like 2 back surgeries, one a lower back fusion has kept me out of the spot light. And yes climbing will give you a emotional natural high, we guys physically just don't show it, HaHa.

      Nice to see you. That looked fun. With my back problems I don't think I'd be able to something like that now either.

      Good morning Matt...nice series of pics and great shot of you with Mt. Baker in the background. It must have been quite the hike to the top...although the view looks worth it. I hope you are well and have a most pleasant weekend.

      PS...love the blue leotards you're wearing :-)

      Nice to have you back Lacey and thanks for the comments! I was hoping that nobody would notice the leotards, HaHa. Actually they are special made long underwear to keep you warm even when wet. They don't hold much moisture and are super light weight, which was critical when climbing. Also it was the style in the 90's for outdoors enthusiast. Might have to do with the "Seattle Grunge" back in the 90's.
