Jasper the Dog

Soo… Chinese Crested dogs are commonly voted as the “World’s Ugliest Dogs” time and time again. Mike and Kelly (my awesome Portland hosts) got one because of allergies, and it was at the pound. He is quite “different” and a little “neurotic” at times, but he’s pretty cool. Taking pictures of him was quite hard because he..

can get scared of camera flashes…

And make dinosaur faces…

But he’s pretty cool

and sometimes…

if you suprise him…

you can get some

pretty decent pictures.

Mount Rainier National Park (Day 43)

I went over to the “Paradise” portion of Mount Rainier National Park. Took some pictures on the way, and hiked up nearly 5000 feet of elevation in about 5 miles to Camp Muir, a base camp for summiting Mount Rainier. Quite possibly one of the coolest hikes ever. I’m totally bringing my snowboard the next time I do it.

Mount Rainier again

Reflection Lake lives up to it’s name a few times…

Mount Adams

Mount St. Helens

This is the glacier i climbed up, one foot at a time, slipping every once in a while, and don’t take too big of steps…

That’s the “Paradise” visitor center at Mount Rainier that I started at

Don’t fall into the crevasse. Man it was kinda scary, went down 30?50? feet? I don’t know, didn’t get close enough to find out.

Mount Adams from a little higher up Mount Rainier

Mount Hood

Mount Saint Helens

Camp Muir! I made it! those crazy S.O.B.s have/will climbed to the top of Rainier.

See, i DID make it.

Clouds roll in…

I hiked through it and came out below the clouds…


Mount Rainier National Park (Day 42)

Went up to the “Sunrise” section of Mount Rainier National Park…

I didn’t caption a lot of these, but they are all in the “Sunrise” portion of the park.

Handstand at sunrise point

Mount Freemont Lookout, awesome trail, and there is the lookout!

2 days after labor day, they were using a helicopter to take stuff to/from the lookout and I got a close view!
