World Climbing: Images from the Edge Book Review

World Climbing: Images from the Edge Book Review

Simon Carter’s photography is flawlessly presented and punctuated with short text, just enough to inform and not distract from the beauty that he captures with his camera. He begins in the Blue Mountains of Australia where the introduction of over 2000 routes is enough to whet the climber’s appetite.

Photographing Glacial Change – Visual Reality

Photographing Glacial Change – Visual Reality

When I was 12, I visited Mendenhall Glacier in Alaska with my parents and grandparents who had grown up in Juneau and been there for years. I took photos with my 35 mm point and shoot camera, not realizing then that I was capturing something that would slowly recede into the mists of time.

Fauna From The Himalayas

Fauna From The Himalayas

I’m on the ascent to the magnificent Annapurna range that has an unparalleled reputation for breath-taking views, quaint Sherpa villages and an enviable array of flora and fauna. My first stop is Hyangja – a Tibetan refugee camp where I enjoy fuelling myself with freshly steamed buffalo momos and hot chai in preparation for walking that awaits me.

Los Gigantes Argentina

The colors on this stretch of road shift depending on the season. In September, the earth is bone dry, most of the color bleached out of the grass by the combination of winter drought and frigid temperatures.

Horseshoe Basin, North Cascades National Park

Horseshoe Basin, North Cascades National Park

The basin was aglow in the afternoon light, orange granite spires surrounding the lip like fangs, too-numerous-to-count waterfalls glistening, their sparkling waters plunging down into the valley. There were wildflowers popping out everywhere, yellows and purples, reds and blues, all accenting the deep green of the basin floor.

Hiking Table Mountain – Mt Baker

Hiking Table Mountain – Mt Baker

If your idea of a summit is sharp and pointy Table Mountain is neither; rather, it is more akin to a mesa or broad plateau with several easily accessible highpoints with views in all directions.

Fischer Towers, Utah

Fischer Towers, Utah

Named for a local miner, these towers are slowly being extruded as they outlast the mesa from which they rise. Layton Kor et.al scrapped his way up the tallest tower of the group–the 800-plus foot Titan–back in 1962 and the route was etched into climbing history after Steck and Roper included it in their Fifty Classic Climbs of North America. Today, the towers attract more climbers than ever (some say too many) and endure a seemingly constant threat of development from both land owners, gas companies and Utah’s own Governor, Gary Herbert.
