Trillium Lake March 24 2013

Ann and I did an overnight snowshoe trip to Trillium lake.  The snow conditions were great, and it cleared up overnight for some nice views, but by morning it had clouded up again.

Canon Rebel T2i pictures

I purchased a refurbished Canon Rebel T2i and the 18 - 55 & 55 - 250 mm lens last fall and have taken it on several hikes since that time. 
I thought I would catch up on my favorite pictures that I have taken so far which haven't been in my previous posts.

Boy Scout Ridge - Anniversary weekend

Snowshoed up to Boy Scout Ridge on Mt hood for the night and spend a beautiful windy night with my dear wife on our 17th anniversary weekend.  We have stayed on the ridge once before a little further down the ridge and like that spot more since it isn't directly lit up by the spot lights at Timberline Lodge which is one ridge over.
Now for some pictures. (you can click on pictures for larger size)

A clear but windy night

Cloudy day at Cape Meares

Last Sunday, I went to the Oregon Coast with our friend Janie to do some picture taking.  The day ended up very cloudy and breezy, but I still managed to get some pictures.  We went to Cape Meares and Oceanside which are just west of Tillamook.

Signs that Spring is nearing

While I was putting the tree trimmings into the recycle bin today, I got distracted by the flowers starting to bloom in our yard.  I love this time of year when spring starts to show that it is near.
