August 1, 2014

    Morning after Ironman, pretty clean considering how may people were there!

    A very quiet Lake compared to Sunday morning.  July 28, 2014.

    Looking to the East end of  Cheakamus Lake.

    Beginning of the Cheakamus River,


    Cheakamus Crossing.


    Over the past few days the sunrise has been pretty much the same each day.

    Temperatures of +35 in Pemberton over the past week, very little snow left on NW face of Currie!

    Cloud development this am to the South of our zone.

    Moisture in Washington State this morning.
