Mt. Rainier at Sunset

Posted by admin on 30th May 2008

This is a photo that I took during my trip in August 2005 of Mt. Rainier right at Sunset.  The sun was reflecting off the mountain giving it a golden glow that one would normally see on Mt. Fuji in Japan.

The Concrete Cowboy

Posted by admin on 14th May 2008

Here are a few photos from my trek through the trails of Mt Fuji on horseback.  For those of you who think I am just The Concrete Cowboy, here is proof otherwise.  Obviously, I could not do these trails alone…I must thank my trusty mount, Caramel for getting me up and down the trails of Mt. Fuji, Japan.

Mt. Fuji Sunset

Posted by admin on 17th March 2001

These were taken in march 2001 from the Citicorp Center Building in Tokyo.  With Mt. Fuji in the background and the sun at just the right angle, it lends to the addive about Japan, “Land of the Rising Sun”.

Ellison Glacier, Mt. Rainier

Posted by admin on 22nd July 2000

These were taken during my trip to the Ellison Glacier on Mt. Rainier on July 17, 2000.  Fortunately we were given a great day for hiking and for photography.  When we were shooting from the Chinook Pass side, the view of the mountain was perfect even at the 20 mile distance we were at.  Most of the photos here are from the hike up the Ellison Glacier trail at White River, Washington.
