My Favorite Backpacking Trip
I have done so many hikes I can't remember nearly half of them, but one I will never forget is the Ptarmigan Traverse of the North Cascades. This is a high alpine traverse involving daily glacier travel through rugged North Cascades majesty. In 2003, my family (dad, mom, sister, and I) did this beautiful 6-day hike. This page shows some of my photos from our 2003 family adventure. I also provide links to more recent adventures on the Ptarmigan Traverse.

The 2009 trip report is much more detailed and has more photos.

Also, in August 2007, my mom and I did a 2-night backpack to just past Kool-Aid Lake on the Ptarmigan Traverse. The second day I climbed Mt. Formidable.

On Day 5 of the Ptarmigan Traverse, my dad, sister, and I climbed Spire Point via the East Face (4th to low 5th). Click the photo below to see a short trip report for our climb of Spire Point.
