Your shots seem to be mostly from the dry side of the mountains - you ever come to the wet side?

Hey! Stop showing others what this place looks like! It's crowded enough here as is.

Excellent pictures, though. I haven't done nearly as much hiking as planned, myself.

That isn't Dog Lake is it?

Yeah people look at me funny hauling stuffed goats up the mountain, but they make for good photos, so I keep at it

Fake, motorized goats are even heavier, but worth it.. This was much steeper than it looks on this vid.

Nice photos.
You got some pretty spectacular places around too if you get out of town - we spent a week touring around the outskirts early this summer. Really dig some of the places down there

I won't take up your time with too many photos, but this hike is one of the highlights of that trip

Angels Landing- pure awesome

Up that spine to the top(not for folks afeared of heights) We got a bit of vertigo and are usually fine with that type of thing. People kept falling off and killing themselves I guess, so they put a chain right up the middle. Won't keep you from falling off, but at least it's something to hang onto if you like.






No gradual descents

And just because- found this guy hanging out under a pier right downtown Olympia. We were walking in the dark shining flashlights into the water and this dude floated up. I'm pretty sure my wife jumped 15 feet straight in the air haha
