Saturday at the Basin courtesy of @segbrown
Took a hike in the mountains today. These shots are not easily taken in May, you usually have to wait for late July or August, but this year is different.
My same old subjects but I just can't get enough.
Thank you. Top pic is of Mt. Baker from Artist Point, just above the ski area. Lower picture is of Mt. Shuksan from inside the Mt. Baker Ski Area, just above the loading area for Chair 8.
Ah yes, I was just up skiing the rock garden and the run above... very good for this time of year! Hit berthoud pass on Friday as well, the 90's were great. A basin on Sat - Monday, some fresh powder on Sat after they re-opened because of lightening. Stellar weekend!
This pic was taken by a friend on a late-evening road-bike ride the other day, after a series of very intense thunderstorms had passed through. The subject is Maquoit Bay. I think she actually took it WHILE she was riding. (Before you get all huffy about road manners, I think it had probably been twenty minutes since we'd seen a single car. And we were in a very small, very loose group.) I am very lucky that I can ride from my house on roads like this, with friends who take the trouble to record the event so effectively.
