If there was ever a time when there was "just enough" smoke, it was last year when we were on the summit of Glacier Peak, admiring the views of Lime Ridge and the North Cascades beyond. The next morning, an apocalyptic mass of brown haze chased us off the mountain.

This year, that apocalyptic mass of brown haze is back and it's got me wondering why? And how do we prevent it? Statistically, having air like this in 3 out of 4 years is an anomaly that can't be ignored. It's easy to say, "I can't wait til fall clears this up," but I think it's time more people started thinking about long-term solutions. Do yourself a favor and educate yourself. Even a simple Google search like "long term solutions to wildfires" has a bounty of worthwhile reading.

This little Oregon gem had the bluest and COLDEST water I have ever seen! Like this stuff would burn you if you were in the water for more than a few seconds. Despite this sophia jumped in multiple times so that I could get a picture ๐Ÿ˜ it's a good thing she's tougher than me!

All hail Mighty Rainier!

We reached here in the evening on a weekday and had this place completely to ourselves. Clear skies, no moon, perfect setting for an insane night under the stars except for the haze from the recent wildfires. It was still a lot of fun nonetheless as it was perseids season and we saw a lot of shooting stars. This night makes me wonder, if there really is a perfect setting/scene for a photographer where all the desired elements fall in place? Here is a shot from that "not-so-perfect" night. .

I was just so mesmerized by this place that I just had to go back at least one more time before the end of summer. Even with all the haziness lately we still managed to see some pretty sick views. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

I thought about the missing hiker Sam Sayers a lot this weekend. We were in the North Cascades, saw the SAR team, heard the helicopters.
I didn't hike alone--this time. But I have many times in the past, and I'd like to continue that practice--without fear.
The story hits pretty close to home for me. She did everything right, you know? And she still hasn't been found...
My heart aches for her family and friends. ๐Ÿ’”

The smoky skies are getting to everyone…here’s a twilight shot from a couple of weeks ago…something to enjoy until our skies return to their normal clear blue. This is a long exposure to flatten out the water and bring out the best of the color.
