My apologizes.

I really am still here...

Now that I have a new computer, that will not blue screen of death everytime I plug my camera into the USB port, I will get back on my game.

I guarantee photos this week will be posted and that they will continue!!

Wow I can not believe what a slacker I am at updating this blog... its not like I haven't taken a million photos lately, some that are even post worthy. Perhaps I will get back on the bandwagon and get posting. I promise more of my perspective to come.

Summer at Mt. Baker

Richard and I headed up to Mt. Baker Ski area on Canada Day to check out the views and play in the snow. We saw a lovely small forest fire on the way just outside of Maple Falls and the smoke did not make photographing the mountains as fun!

Mt. Shuksan - One of the most photographed mountains in the world! I actually seen pictures of this mountain hanging on the walls all over the world!

Mt. Baker ski area does hold the world record for the most snowfall in one season at 1,140 inches (95 feet or almost 20 meters). This is what some of the snowbanks look like in July. Keep in mind Richard is 6'7. Imagine what these snowbanks look like in the middle of winter... It's usually like driving in a tunnel.

More of Mt. Shuksan, you can see the toe of the glacier.

Tourist In Your Own City Part II

Richard and I spent Saturday afternoon doing another tour of a few of Vancouver's famous attractions. We went to the Vancouver Aquarium and then finally took a tram ride up to Grouse Mountain. While we have both been up Grouse Mountain alot for snowboarding and skiing during the winter we both had not been up there during the summer, so it was interesting. We watched a log show and checked out the grizzly bears. There is still alot of snow up there, this winter was a crazy one.

Here are some jellyfish we saw, they really seem like amazing creatures.

The Vancouver Aquariums famous paw holding sea otters. They were not holding paws at the time, as this little guy was just too busy sleeping. They are so cute though!

The giant harbour seal is having a good snooze also, if you look closely you can see that his tounge is sticking out a bit, I never noticed until I looked at the picture :)

The only picture I really liked from up on Grouse, although we took alot of the view and whatnot, it was a hazy day and the photos just did not do the view justice. This log show was actually pretty good, had a few laughs from it.

Aloha Yeti!

I recently snapped some shots of the Yeti wearing some of Hawaiian leis that we were given in Maui. At first he didn't seem to notice he had them on. I think he looks cute.

He does not look as impressed in this shot but his eyes look nice!
