Mid spring outing to see the bloom, get some sun. I've been doing more biking than hiking as of late.

A really strenuous outing, but a really beautiful day up high on Mt Hood.

Nice snowshoe hike in a wooded forest, a mix of wide roadbed and narrow trails. A couple of viewpoints, though the mountain didn't quite cooperate. Good snowfall amounts, more than I've seen in years.

An incredibly beautiful day snowshoeing the slopes of Mt Rainier. We traveled up to Panorama Pt, then beyond to a traverse below McClure Rock and into a large bowl east of Paradise. Conditions were pretty much perfect, even a bit warm. Hard crust on top of powder, avalanche danger was moderate.
