Fire Totem

As you approach the Copper Spur you find yourself meandering through a burnt forest. Dead trees lurk from the ashes scattered on the snow, showing you the aftermath of the inferno. Here You may spot the greatest carver of the Northwest; Fire. And you may spot the Charcoal Totem.

North Face Of Mount Hood

Through the brunt forest she rises.

Journeys into the Backcountry

One of my old time backcountry partner is the legendary Maximilien. We've known each other, and climbed together for 12 years. After a small mission to Tahoe he shows me the way deep into his backyard. Skiing with your friends is priceless. Maximilien and Jonie ahead on the slope.

Adventure Cat

Riley was born in Brooklyn, where he resided until he met us. Then he drove cross-country, spent time in a Bavarian town, and now lives in PDX. His traveling cave bears the icons of his parents, and the pride of his travels!
