Here we see mt. shuksan, 2783m, (9131'), seen from near the mt. baker ski area. the peak itself is within north cascades national park, washington state. image taken february 1979, in 4x5 film format using a 20" bausch & lomb lens.

4m4221 & 4m4221-bw - mt shuksan, winter, north cascades nat park, wa
photo tip: while mt. rainier is the most photographed mountain in washington, this view of mt shuksan is the most single photographed mountain view in the state and is iconic, much like the maroon bells in colorado. route 542, the mt. baker scenic byway, leads right to this spot.

The Totem Pole, seen here, in Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, straddling the Arizona/Utah border is perhaps the most famous free standing rock in the world. It is 142m, (465') in height, measured from its base at the top of the talus slope, and it is wider at the top than in the middle.

The totem pole, seen here, in monument valley navajo tribal park, straddling the arizona/utah border is perhaps the most famous free standing rock in the world. it is 142m, (465') in height, measured from its base at the top of the talus slope, and it is wider at the top than in the middle. all climbing has been banned in monument valley since 1975 when the movie "eiger sanction" was filmed, in part here, starring clint eastwood and george kennedy. climbing scenes were filmed here but the actual climbers were eric bjornstad, (1934-2014), one of my early climbing partners, and ken wyrick. they removed all the hardware from previous climbs. only clandestine climbs have been made since, risking heavy fines or even jail time. image taken in 1974, in 4x5 film format.

photo tip: know when you take a picture of this iconic pinnacle, you are taking a picture of a scene with considerable historic interest. this is probably the best known sandstone pinnacle on the globe. luckily, i was able to capture this image with a streaming cloud, like a flag, flying from the top.

Here we see the 14,000 foot peaks of the Palisade Crest, in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, seen from Sierra Point in the White Mountains, at sunrise. Owens Valley, (seen between the ranges) is a full 3050m, (10,000') below. Highest peak is the North Palisade, 4341m, (14,242'), and is located just above Temple Crag, the large block of dark rock in the upper right center. The largest glaciers in the Sierra Nevada are located below these peaks. Image taken February 28th, 1987 in 4x5 film format.

2M6457-A - Sierra Nevada seen from Sierra Point, winter, White Mountains, CA
PHOTO TIP: This is one of the more incredible images in my collection. First, to reach this location in the winter is very difficult. Sierra Point is not normally easily reachable in the winter except by a long hike on the road. Further, there is a gate early on in the road that will probably be locked even if you could drive further. If you are fortunate enough to reach this viewpoint in the winter, the time to be there is sunrise to capture a view like this. Be prepared for cold and possibly high winds (which I had). For some reason the gate was open when I went there, and it was a low snow year, which enabled me to barely reach Sierra Point (not in a 4 wheel drive), and capture this image on a February day.

Here we see harsh winter winds blowing over the top of Mt. Williamson, 4382m, (14,375'), the 2nd highest peak in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and probably the most massive peak in the John Muir Wilderness, in Inyo National Forest, California. The temperature where I took this picture, 3048m, (10,000') below the summit was 10 F, but at the top of the mountain it was around -20 F with a wind chill of -40 to -50 F. Image taken March 11th 1991, in 4x5 film format.

PHOTO COMMENT: I happened to be on the east side of the Sierra Nevada during the ”Miracle March” of 1991 when storm after storm slammed into the Sierra Nevada saving it from being a drought year. It was the same time when Queen Elizabeth visited California in her yacht and had such bad weather. However it made for great pictures with fresh snow plastered on the peaks almost to the floor of Owens Valley.

Now that winter is here we have this view from Moro Rock, (in Sequoia National Park), looking towards the Great Western Divide, which is 72km, (45 miles) long, the most conspicuous sub-range in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, California. Some of the highest peaks seen here in the center, in the Kaweahs, are Mt. Kaweah, and the Black Kaweah, 4207m, (13,802'), and 4196m, (13,796') respectively. Picture taken March 6th, 1990 in 4x5 film format.

2M6845 – Great Western Divide, Sierra Nevada, seen from Sequoia National Park, CA.
PHOTO TIP: One of the best views of the Great Western Divide is to be had from Moro Rock in Sequoia National Park. Winter snows enhance this view. Be prepared to hike in deep snow, or on skis or snowshoes to reach Moro Rock. The trail to the top is hazardous under these conditions, and not recommended for anyone not familiar with snow and ice conditions.

Here we see an image from one of my recent photo trips, of peaks in the Sawtooth Range rising above the Sawtooth Valley in a dramatic fashion, in Idaho. Image taken May 5th 2016, in digital format.

D07329 – Sawtooth Range peaks seen from Sawtooth Valley, ID
PHOTO COMMENT: This area is within the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. The peaks present quite a profile from the Sawtooth Valley. I tend to think of the area as “Teton Light.” The crowds are much less here than in the Tetons, and the granite of the Sawtooth Range offers great climbing. The fishing here is also great!

As we continue in winter across most of the continent, Here we see Paradise Inn, on Mt. Rainier, in Mt. Rainier National Park, Washington state, in the Cascade chain of volcanoes. It's a little hard to see, because after this snowstorm it was buried almost completely, all the way up to the 3rd story! In the background are Castle Peak, (left), 1981m, (6500'), and Pinnacle Peak, (right), 2000m, (6562'), which was the first peak I ever climbed at age 16. Paradise, at the 5400' level, broke the world's record for snowfall in the 71-72 season with 2851cm, (1122.5

2m4811 – paradise inn, winter, mt rainier national park, wa
photo tip: it’s really hard for someone who doesn’t live in the pacific northwest to understand how much it can snow on the western slopes of the cascade and olympic mountains. the mind boggling totals are described in the caption on the image. this does offer splendid opportunities for ski touring, and witnessing such scenes as this. check with park authorities before heading up to paradise in the winter; the road is subject to closure at any time.

In a much less crowded area of Arch’s National Park, here we see Turret Arch in its winter dress, framed by a Juniper Tree in Arches National Park, Utah. While rock climbing is very popular all over Arches National Park, climbing on any named arches is strictly forbidden. Image taken February, 1975 in 4x5 film format.

Happy New Year 2018! Here we have a VERY rare sight here in California. In another pick from my wine country collection, we see a snow capped Mt. St. Helena, 1324m, (4,343'), which is an extinct volcano at the north end of the Napa Valley, in the wine country of northern California, very close to where I live. Rising above mustard flowers and vineyards, it creates a classic and rare scene. The peak is in Robert Louis Stevenson State park. Image taken January 1982, in 4x5 film format.

4B6384-H & 4B6385-V - Snow on Mt. St. Helena, Napa Valley, CA
PHOTO TIP: Here in the vineyards of California winter doesn't generally come to us, except in the form of light snow on the surrounding peaks maybe a couple of days throughout the winter. This particular year was an exception with quite a bit of snow on Mt. St. Helena. When you see snow on the peaks try and capture it right away because it usually doesn't last long. The combination of mustard in the vineyards and snow on the peak is a winning one.

Here we see harsh winter winds screaming over Mt. Bradley, 4050m, (13,289'), in the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains, in the John Muir Wilderness, on the border of Kings Canyon National Park, California. The Temperature on the summit, with wind chill factor, (60+ mph wind) is in the neighborhood of -40 to -50 degrees F. Wind driven spindrift snow will find its way into all openings or tiny crevices in clothing or tents. No one who has not personally experienced such circumstances can imagine how bad they really are. Image taken March 11th 1991, in 4x5 film format.

Here we see the stunning winter contrast of color with the General Sherman Giant Sequoia tree, (Sequoiadendron giganteum), in rear, the largest tree in the world by volume, in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Sequoia National Park, California. These trees dwarf us, and really put our own existence into perspective. Image taken March 9th 1990, in 4x5 film format.
_____________________________________________
2M6834 – General Sherman Tree, world’s largest in Volume, Sequoia National Park, CA
PHOTO TIP: Winter is the best time to see the giant sequoias. The winter snow that covers the ground softens any sounds, giving the effect of being in a large cathedral. Further, there are far fewer people here at this time of the year making for a more serene visit. The bark colors are also more intense in a snowy landscape.

Here we are in the wonder of winter in the Giant Sequoias, (Sequoiaden Giganteum), in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Sequoia National Park, California. On the right you can see the General's Highway through the Giant forest, which connects Sequoia National Forest (here), and King's Canyon National Park, (to the north). These amazing trees are found only on the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada, between the elevations of 1372m - 2286m, (4500 - 7500'). Photo taken March 5th, 1990 in 4x5 film format.

2M6836 – Generals Highway, sequoia trees, Sequoia National Park, CA
PHOTO TIP: When shooting sequoias, try and get close to at least one sequoia showing detail in the bark. This, combined with the Generals Highway on the right, help give perspective to the size of these trees. The effect of the snow cover on low lying shrubs and plants enhances the effect of the giant status of these trees.
