Sick pictures snowolf.
I want to do more stuff like that next year but it's hard to find friends that love being outside. All 18 year old's care about is getting drunk

Dude, story of my life. I end up hanging out with my dad doing outdoor stuff a lot since he's like a giant kid, and I'm like an old man in a kid suit. Funny how things work out

Both of your vids are awesome. Whats the temp like on Mt. Hood in the summer? That snow sounded so crunchy but totally worth the hike in summer.

I also did some rafting up in northern Maine. Made friends with all the raft guides up there and did play runs everytime (non-commercial)! Surfed this for about 25minutes before hitting goodbye wave in the backround flipping over the raft!


Also got in tons of hiking, jibbed a lil out on the lawn and picnic table.. Got bigger into longboarding after they paved my road 2 miles of downhill riding.. rode my horse some.. got in some rock climbing.. hit up a few waterfalls.. and wakeboarded out on Lake Winnipesaukee. All in all a good summer

Very cool, wish we had some snow around here in the summer.
This was one of my favourite summers actually...good times

Tobermory












The Cove - i'm the little line on top right, thing was massive


The Grotto - There's a hole near the cliff's edge that you climb down into and come out in to the grotto, Inside the grotto is deep blue water that you dive in to, swim under and come out on the other side of the cave




Tobermory Nights

My girlfriend and I climbed Katahdin the weekend before last. Ascended via the Cathedral Trail, crossed the Knife Edge and Descended Helon Taylor. I do not recommend this route if you have any fear of heights....seriously. I thought people were playing it up or just being wusses.....that is not the case. The word 'trail' is used carelessly in Maine. Truly an amazing adventure that I will never forget and will occasionally wake up in a cold sweat recalling. Katahdin is the only western peak this side of the Mississippi.

A view of Katahdin from the South Basin @ Chimney Pond.


First Cathedral from the base of the rubble field. Starting the ascent.


View from the Second Cathedral


Looking out at the Knife Edge from the Third Cathedral Rock.


Cliffs along the final ascent to summit of Baxter.


Looking along the ridge leading to the Knife Edge from Baxter Peak


This is a GPL image of the knife edge. (I was too bloody terrified to take my camera out. It is at times a three foot wide crumbling granite pathway being cleaved apart by the passage of time. Imagine walking on the back of a Stegasaurus with 3000 foot drops on either side. At other times you have to cling to the side of a cliff with NOTHING below you. Once you finally make it to the end its an easy (by climber standards) almost technical climb straight down about 50yards with no ropes. It is 1.1 miles from the peak to Pamola and takes 2-3 hours to navigate safely.)


Lookout down at the Helon Taylor ridge on the descent.
