Snowshoeing at Gold Creek Pond

My in-laws were in town and we decided to all go up to the Snoqualmie Pass and go snowshoeing. On the drive up, the ground was completely bare and there was no sign of snow. We quickly became worried that this was going to end up being just a normal hike. But as we got closer to The Summit, snow started to appear. In fact, not only was it on the ground but it was also falling from the sky. We put on our shoes and then started the hike. It quickly became a beautiful winter day. All images were shot on a Pentax K1000 using Ilford HP5 Plus B&W film.

Arizona in the Winter

Being able to escape the gloomy weather of the PNW and head south was great. I stayed in Phoenix for a week and also had a day to travel north and see a little of Sedona. The landscape of the desert amazes me especially the cacti thats found everywhere. I was able to take a tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West which was very impressive. (Red seems to be his favorite color). I also got to see the Desert Botanical Garden near Papago Park and really enjoyed seeing all the different cacti and agave plants. If I had more time I would've gone on a few hikes. Maybe next time.
