Hot Tubbing, Valle Nevado, Chile August 2013

While waiting for a storm to break at Valle Nevado we took time to relax in the hot tub. While we were there, the storm finally dissipated revealing a landscape of fresh, untouched snow all around. Needless to say, our stoke levels for the coming days rose immediately.

Huddled at Piker's, Mt. Adams, WA, September 2013

Piker's peak is the false summit that taunts South Spur climbers on Mt. Adams. It is also perhaps one of the toughest parts of the climb. Here a couple huddles together as another crests the final feet to the peak. Unfortunately, 60mph winds made this  flat rest stop short for most climbers that day.

Why get out of the tent to cook when it's cold and windy? Here Thomas Bolton boils water as we eat cheese and pepperoni, recovering from our first day of hiking up to high camp, and getting ready to cook some food for dinner.
