on a happier note...

i've posted a lot of these (read: similar) pictures in fire_orchid, but just today i took the memory card from my broken digital camera over to Target to use their digital photo kiosk, and had these pictures burned to a CD. so horray. i have access now to the pictures from fwackoom and my backpacking trip from a couple of weeks ago that were on my camera before it died.



to start, on the drive up... here be Mount Baker peaking over these peaks. forgive the excessive appearance of the telephone pole.


an ancient Doug Fir stump. and Dane, for some size comparison.


a glimpse of Shuksan!


Shuksan, revealed.




the surrounding smaller peaks... it is a truely beautiful area.


Shuksan, and a small lake.


this here is Table-Top Mountain. can you tell why it's called that?






on the start of our hike... Dane overlooking the valley we hiked down into...


hiking through the valley itself, with Shuksan looming up ahead...


gorgeous Mount Shuksan.


yours truely...


the water is so clear up there...






Mount Baker, looking quite regal there framed by the trees...


looking back the direction we came...


...and looking ahead the way we're going...




there are a lot of glacial streams that just pour down the mountains as you hike through...


Baker, overlooking its domain...


the cast of our story.




you can kind of see the path we were following, leading up to the hanging valley up ahead...


Dane, and Mount Baker.


and, Lake Ann, our destination.


Table-Top Mountain, to give you a sense of how much of a climb we did, as compared to the pictures of it earlier on.
