Reminds me of how much I hate heights! Excellent photography Eric.. Another FAv
Greetings from Bellingham, Wa
A powerful vista and a wonderful photo. Not something easily achieved. An automatic Favorite!
Not "damage" to the Beaver :-) They've been so heavily trapped in the last ten years...
Found a description of it in the original Beckey's Bible
You made a nice capture of the chimney.
This looks like an aerial photo, but was shot from at or near the high point of our attempt on Nooksack Tower. We had intended this as a normal two-day weekend, but at this point it was 6:00 Sunday evening, and our car was parked in the valley bottom near the top of the photo. We rappelled and downclimbed rotten rock and steep snow/ice through the night, reaching our camp beside the glacier at 6:00 Monday morning, 23 hours and 50 minutes after we had left it. Details in Derek Franzen's trip report on www.summitpost.org
I guess in the summer it's a sharp, rock ridge requiring some care to traverse. We had it good on this January weekend, other than camping high on the mountain in temperatures in the negative teens.
You'll find more info on Davis Peak, including more photos of our climb of it on SummitPost.org.
Yes, it's right down in the bottom land, just far enough from the clear, rushing creek to protect it from erosion around its roots. I'm sure it gets flooded a bit every spring. Even on the dry summer day we hiked there, the soil was moist here in the bottoms.
It's a short, but beautiful hike, ending here at a washed-out bridge. You might be able to ford the creek in late summer or fall. The trail seems to have been forgotten; we saw no human footprints on it. The trailhead parking was gravel, but so little-used that it was being taken over by soft, green grass.
Very nice picture
