Sittin on top of the world.

So while the rest of you were lying around on the couch in your underwear, hypnotized by the Olympics, my sister and I decided to climb a mountain. These photos are further proof I live in the best place on earth.

This was a our pump-up song before the hike and also our celebration song after the hike:

Cat Stevens – Can’t Keep It In

Waterfall!

Me and my backpack!

My sister and a friend!

Beautiful British Columbia, living up to its name!

  • Killer blog man. Killer. I’ll be adding you to the blogroll.

    i wasn’t on no couch; i was climbing up Mount Horrid in Vermont! Great photos. It’s so worth the climb, no? 🙂

  • Damn I am SOOO jealous. That looks amazing. How far is that from where you actually live?Oh and Cat Steven’s is awesome. Great pump up song!

  • Oh and great photos too. I like the wide shot especially, nice self placement off to the side.

  • wow, amazing place and amazing photos to describe it. your colors are so nice.

  • it’s about 1.5hrs from where i live. pretty lucky, i think everyone here in vancouver takes it for granted. yea that last photo is a quick photoshop job, i took about 5 or 6 photos for a full 360 panorama from the top of the mountain from the same place where someone took the photo of my sister and i.

    and ya Cat Stevens is the BEST.

  • Jess, so worth it! how was mount Horrid? is that really the name? haha

    Adam – thanks man yea it was amazing standing at the top, half of those photos my sister took.

  • Yo Jeff, photos look amazing man.

    We just did a trip in the Adirondacks, Upstate New York’s answer to British Columbia haha.

    From your pictures it looks like your mountains are slightly more amazing but check out the pics from out trip you will defiantly appreciate them if your a fan of skipping the Olympics for hiking a mountain.

    ha, nope that’s really the name. i had to double check, too.

  • Kyle

    Is that a chief? I mean the view looks like it from the panorama but the others I can’t really tell!

  • yea its from the chief!

    phil, your photos are great! love the bridge jumping!

    The next step is “The Grind”

    I know you vowed never to do it, but just do it already.

  • Doing The Grind after The Chief would be such a step down. it would literally be like winning the lottery and then getting kicked in the nuts.

  • dope pics man. what camera did you shoot these with? or did you fake film it in photoshop? haha. i’m diggin the blog though. keep up the good work!

  • haha you betta believe its photoshop

Intricately Crocheted Coral Reefs

Coral2

Toxic Seas is a passion project started in 2005 by academics and artistic partners Margaret and Christine Wertheim. The series of handmade coral reefs are meant to raise awareness about environmental issues (such as the fragile state of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef) by creating a greater appreciation for the complex design of natural formations (demonstrated through the algorithmic art of crochet). See more images below or on display at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York from September 30th until February 5th.
