This photo, looking across the Hubbard and Seward Glaciers, was taken from the east ridge of Mount Logan. We were descending at night after having climbed the East Peak. It was midnight on June 21, 1978, the longest day of the year, and one of our group looked up and said "Wow! Look at that!" The moon had just popped over the shoulder of Mount Vancouver. The image was taken on my old Rollei 35S, handheld at about 15th of a second.
In the summer of 2007, as I walked down to the Stubai Valley in Austria, from the Neue Regensberg Hut, I was treated to this magical scene.

When I first saw the north face of the Aiguille du Triolet I knew that I wanted to climb it. The next year, with Matt Hale, a fine American climber, I had the pleasure of making the ascent.

This is the fantastic view of the Grandes Jorasses with the Walker Spur in profile that you get when you walk out of the Aiguille du Midi telepherique station above Chamonix in France. It is enough to take your breath away.

The striking spire known as the Finger just west of Banff has a romantic and storied history.
The east ridge of Mount Logan is one of the greatest climbs in the world, about 4000 m from bottom to top. Just as we approached the mountain in 1978 an avalanche roared down the flank of the ridge to the glacier below.
