Fading Light

This picture was taken while mountain biking on the West Sopris Trail.  Though it doesn’t look it the day was wearing on.  This trail was a  mystery to me and the two guys I met.  We all agreed that without our combined knowledge we wouldn’t have figured it out.  It was a true Epic in the regard.  Later the light […]

Lupin

This shot was take at Indian Bar Camp in Mount Rainer National Park.  My tow buddies and I hiked in on the Wonderland Tr. and out in one day.  It’s a long day hike but for those up for the challenge, it’s well worth the effort.  The views are amazing and for the most the trip is not that overly […]
