Winter Clouds over Sandias 2022, Part 1

The setting sun casts shadows across the foothills of the Sandia Mountains outside Albuquerque, New Mexico. I always appreciate when the moon shows up over the clouds- see the upper right corner of the panorama.

Setting Sun from Big Arete on Pilot Mountain

One of my favorite climbs at Pilot Mountain, Smooth Sailing (a nice 5.10a) tops out on a cliff that juts out over the valley, providing 200-degree views of the rolling hills below the mountain. I had the pleasure of removing our anchors and sitting alone with a few circling birds as the sun set behind the clouds.

Fog over Lowlands from Pilot Mountain Summit

A few weeks ago, we camped near the base of Pilot Mountain and got up early the next morning to start climbing. When we arrived at the summit, we were greeted with a spectacular view of fog filling the low-lying areas between hills, with the fog almost looking like a meandering river or lake.

Summersville/Gauley River Falls, Part 1

On a recent climbing trip to the New River Gorge area in West Virginia, we hiked past a set of falls on our way to the cliffs along the shore of Lake Summersville. I stopped and set up my camera to make a few long-exposure photographs of the falls on our walk back to the car. Note the old wooden ladder that used to be used to access the area, and the new stairs next to it (much less scary to descend!).
