One of the Sawtooth's most spectacular peaks catching early morning light with mists rising from Stanley Lake. A fine way to start a day.

Enjoy a wonderful Autumn weekend!

Mount Hunter or Begguya is a mountain in Denali National Park in Alaska. It is approximately eight miles (13 km) south of Denali, the highest peak in North America. "Begguya" means "Child of Denali" in the Dena'ina language. Mount Hunter is the third-highest major peak in the Alaska Range.

 

Despite being much lower in elevation than Denali Mount Hunter is a more difficult climb, due to its steep faces and corniced ridges; it also sees far less traffic than its larger neighbor.

This is a picture taken two years ago. I remember I was so much surprised to see snow and Picture lake frozen at the beginning of October.

Mt. Robson (3,954 m = 12,972 ft), is also known as "Cloud Cap Mountain" and by climbers as the "Great White Fright."

 

With 2,975 m (9,760 ft) elevation gain from the valley floor below it is a difficult challenge for those brave enough to climb it.

 

One of many remarkable peaks of the Canadian Rockies.

 

Happy Friday!

Vermilion Lakes, Banff National Park, Alberta Canada

Stopped by Mt. Shuksan on our way home from Canada to check on the fall colors and it looks like we hit it at the right time.

We go there every year. Never get tired of this beautiful place.

Mt Rainier National Park, Washington, framed by clouds welling up in the valley and the ever present trees from the Sunrise access point.

Joy and I had the opportunity to spend 20 days exploring Olympic and Rainier National Parks and the Oregon coast. The road trip covered 4000 miles. Coming from the brown of southern California, the intensity of the GREEN in the temperate rain forests wad almost overwhelming. The weather was tough (it is a RAIN forest!) and the light challenging, but it was a magnificent trip. I hope you enjoy some of the shots

Mt. Rainier National Park. The eponymous mountain is reflecting in the aptly named Reflection Lake. It was a rather cloudy and generally nasty day. But for a brief moment, we were lucky

Looking across Lake Minnewanka at one of the many impressive peaks near Banff. Truly mountain heaven.

My happy place.

 

Hope your week is off to a wonderful start!

 

Thanks for taking a look!

   

Another one of the thousands (OK hundreds) of amazing peaks one sees in Kananaskis Country.

 

The Kananaskis river flows below on it's way to join the Bow river east of Canmore.

 

Thanks for taking a peek!

 

Have a wonderful week!

 

Mt. Lassen reflecting in Lake Manzanita, Lassen Volcanic National Park.

Mt Kerling is the highest mountain near inhabited areas in the northern part of the country, 1538 m. It is relatively easy to climb and offers excellent panoramic views on a fine day.

 

Mt. Edith Cavell and Angel Glacier in Jasper National Park. Alberta, Canada.

Every year we take a trip to the North Cascade Mountains to visit Mt. Shuksan, both for the fall colors and for the reflections.

It's never the same, and it never gets boring.

This time when we were there, the colors were nice, But I wished there had been some nice, puffy clouds in the blue sky.

Still, I was not disappointed with the view!

A wonderful sunny day in Alberta's Kananaskis Country with Mt. Nestor rising majestically in the distance. The air was so fresh and sweet.

 

Back from my family visit. Father enjoyed a wonderful 90th. Thank you for the gracious wishes. We appreciated them.

 

Enjoy a terrific Thursday!

In the 62 BC Commagene's mountain sanctuary built on the top of Mt. Nemrut by King Antiochus I Theos, all that remains are broken pieces and huge heads of various Greek, Armenian and Persian gods scattered around the site.

I hiked Mt. Cardigan in NH yesterday with a friend. It was the perfect day for it. I didn't bring my good camera along. It's amazing though what the mobile phones these days are capable of capturing.

 

Best viewed in large.

The 2nd most admired Teton Peak reflected in the famous bend of the Snake River enjoyed on an ideal autumn morning.

 

"Mount Moran (12,610 feet (3,840 m)) is a mountain in Grand Teton National Park of western Wyoming, USA. The mountain is named for Thomas Moran, an American western frontier landscape artist. Mount Moran dominates the northern section of the Teton Range rising 6,000 feet (1,800 m) above Jackson Lake." Wiki

 

"The Tetons are one of the youngest mountain ranges in North America. They have been uplifting for less than 10 million years, making them "adolescent" mountains, as compared to the "middle-aged" Rockies (60-80 million years old) or the "elderly" Appalachians (more than 300 million years old). Erosion has had much less time to work in the Tetons, comparatively, so their jagged peaks remain standing high." nps.gov

 

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

 

View from my backyard hill looking from WA to Oregon Mt Hood. Taken on a low cloud morning...we now have major fires up and down the west coast from CA, OR, WA and surrounding states....it is seriously smoky out and some areas look like plant Mars.

 

One of our families & grand children have been evacuated from Bonney Lake area, northern WA; safely here now. And many other friends and families driven from there homes.

 

We are praying for the firefighters and first responder's out on the front-line saving lives, homes and communities...we thank them for all they do! And continue to be concerned for others.

 

Appreciate your visit, comments and faves ~ Stay safe!

An imposing peak on the road to Lake Moraine at sunset. Jaw dropping scenery all around.

 

Thanks for taking a look and for any comments, faves and suggestions!

 

Enjoy a wonderful week!

a view of Mt Haynes along the Madison River in Yellowstone before the Maple fire which to date has burned over 33,000 acres. The fire would approach from the foreground and hopefully be stopped by the river.

  

As always, thanks so much for stopping by.

Mount Hood, called Wy'east by the Multnomah tribe, is a potentially active stratovolcano in the Cascade Volcanic Arc of northern Oregon. It is the highest point in Oregon, 11,249 ft (3,429 m), and the fourth highest in the Cascade Range.

 

Something we folks that live within the shadows of the Cascades keep in mind:

Mt. Hood is considered the Oregon volcano most likely to erupt, though based on its history, an explosive eruption is unlikely. Still, the odds of an eruption in the next 30 years are estimated at between 3 and 7 percent, so the U.S. Geological Survey characterizes it as "potentially active." Mt. St. Helens comes to mind...

 

Regardless I'm looking forward to spending some time at Mt. Hood's bigger brother, Mt. Rainier, this summer.

Rock face to the setting sun was dyed red.

When it was in previous years, the mountain would have been stained pink with snow.

旅行に行くのでしばらくお休みします。

3月後半に戻ってきます。

しばらくお待ち下さい。

Because I go on a trip, and then rest for a while.

You come back in the second half of March.

Please wait for a little while.

Mount Sanford (16,237′) is a shield volcano in the Wrangell Volcanic Field, in eastern Alaska near the Copper River. It is the third highest volcano in the United States behind Mount Bona and Mount Blackburn.

 

Have a great week!

Mt. Rainier as seen from Mount Fremont lookout.

The lenticular cloud over Mt. Baker brought some raindrops, but none of the predicted snow. We all thought it was fine until the morning commute today. The temperature dropped and the black ice hit right in the middle of the morning commute.

My dream of watching and capturing Mt Kanchenjunga on lens on a cloudless day was finally fulfilled on fourth attempt and that too from a distance of a mere 29 miles. All my previous attempts were nipped by the merciless clouds which planted either a dark or a white giant patch over the world's third highest peak. Just the previous day ominous dark-white clouds hovered over the sky, throwing me into an abyss of despondency once all over again. I desperately prayed to the God on the last day of my trip to bless me with the view before retiring to bed. And at last He listened to my prayer with all ears. At 5.30 the next morning I nervously looked at the sky through the window and lo and behold there is this stunning view. I scrambled to my feet, gathered all my camera gear and rushed onto the street, where I was greeted by three menacing dogs as I ran towards an open, elevated space to capture the fleeting sight painted gloriously into the sky.

View from my hill in Washington across the valley I'm looking at Mt Hood. above W.S.U. campus during early morning foggy sunrise...

The Kananaskis River flows below Mt. Lorette on it's way to join the Bow River.

 

Thanks for your visit! Much appreciated.

 

Enjoy your Wednesday!

As a lot of you know, winter in Western Washington State can be very grey and dreary, but every once in a while, we will have a rare sunny day that makes up for all those other days.

On days like that it is a welcome sight to see The Mountain again, and we took advantage of that by visiting some our favorites views.

This was later in the day of the previous collage.

We left our mooring at the crack of dawn in order to get to the inlet rapids at slack tide. The sun was just hitting the peak of Mt Alfred as we headed out.
