Lake Angeles 1/26/2008

After an aborted attempt to reach the Slab Camp trail for a Blue Mountain hike, four car loads of hikers headed over to the more accessible Lake Angeles trailhead. I had just hiked to Lake Angeles two weeks ago, but it was again a nice outing, snowing hard at the lake.

Lake Angeles 1/13/2008

Today's hike through Olympic National Park provided sunny views of dense, stick-like forests, snow covered Lake Angeles, high mountain ridges, and views from a ridge above the lake of the Puget Sound, Mount Baker, and the Juan de Fuca Strait.

Please view the photographs below - I have captured my favorite trip pictures in the following YouTube movie and still pictures. You will probably need a fast Internet connection to view the movie.

Turn up your speaker volume to hear the crunch of snowshoes and howling wind for the following YouTube movie.
