In January of 2021, two friends and I spent a couple of nights snow camping on Mt. Rainier. The night prior to our arrival they had high winds on the mountain, with gusts in the 90 to 100 mph range. When we checked in at Longmire, the Ranger mentioned it had “not been a good night to be on the mountain.”

The Ranger mentioned it when asking if we were prepared for more wind. Our winds were predicted to gust in the 40 to 45 mph range, and we built snow walls to help shield the tents. It rained some during the night, and the rain combined with the wind sculpted the snow into strong textures that were fascinating to me.

This is a vertical composition; I also have a horizontal composition of the same scene.
