photo 30 Aug 2 notes Here lays the remains of the magnificent Paradise Ice Caves. These caves once attracted scores of tourists to Mt. Rainier in the 1900s. Our fault or not, our climate is changing and our glaciers are disappearing. The proof is all around us. August 30, 2014.( Photo of a Vintage Curteichcolor Postcard Paradise Ice Caves Mt. Ranier National Park, Washington, 455)

photo 21 Aug 2 notes Last photo of the set, @hefe_steele riding down thru the clouds that had just socked us in. The entire day was filled with beautiful sights and seconds later completely fogged in. No complaints tho, where else can you still get your turns in August in the US. #pnw #splitboarding #snowboarding #splitboard #mtrainier #staywild #alwaysascending #earnyourturns #turnsallyear #pacificnorthwest #cascades #climbing #skiing #mountaineering #rei1440project #hiking #keepexploring #backcountry

photo 21 Aug 1 note @hefe_steele riding down into the plan b route. As he was heading down his line, we suddenly got socked in and was about to lose visibility. Quickly cutting across the slope, he headed down to thru an ice field. Snowboarding on ice is ridiculous hard btw… August 20 2014. #pnw #splitboarding #snowboarding #splitboard #mtrainier #staywild #alwaysascending #earnyourturns #turnsallyear #pacificnorthwest #cascades #climbing #skiing #mountaineering #rei1440project #hiking #keepexploring #backcountry

photo 21 Aug 1 note @hefe_steele riding some ice at the bottom of his line. Under the solid ice it sounded like a freight train of water roaring through.

photo 21 Aug 4 notes @hefe_steele said this was the most dangerous line he’s rode this season and it’s definitely the most dangerous I’ve climbed to setup. The dangers were real, to our right were giant seracs that kept spewing rocks down all day, to both sides of the line were open crevasses and below was a solid ice field which ran into a huge waterfalls. Any miscalculation would have resulted in a rough day for us, but we managed the risk and walked away safe.

photo 21 Aug 1 note @hefe_steele starting the approach up the steep headwall to the base of the Paradise Glacier on Mount Rainier. We decided to climb up the headwall to verify exactly what the snow would be like on the ride down.

The approach and decent involved safely crossing a ton of these right below the start of the Paradise Glacier on Mt Rainier.

photo 21 Aug What a beautiful way to get some midweek August turns in the PNW! @hefe_steele and I played hookie from work and headed up to the Paradise Glacier on Mt. Rainier. Even tho we kept getting get socked in, we made the best of it. Any day on the mountain beats a day at the desk :) August 20, 2014. #pnw #splitboarding #snowboarding #splitboard #mtrainier #staywild #alwaysascending #earnyourturns #turnsallyear #pacificnorthwest #cascades #climbing #skiing #mountaineering #rei1440project #hiking #keepexploring #mountainculture

photo 16 Aug 1 note Curious to see what your body looks like when you jump from a waterfalls into some crystal clear water? It looks kinda like this. I setup under the water using a Digapac underwater bag for my Panasonic GH2 and captured some friends diving into the water. It’s so interesting to see how the human body impacts the water! @alexcho267 diving off one of the waterfalls at Opal Creek, Oregon.
