First Place Families on Trail, 2010 Northwest Exposure photo contest: "The picture was shot just uphill from Sunrise on the way to Frozen Lake in Mount Rainier National Park in this August. Whenever my wife is busy I tend to head to a trail with the kids (7, 5, and 3) and we were trying to get to Fremont Lookout before a storm moved in. With the less-than-ideal weather I broke out the M&Ms early on this trip. We've called them "Special Hiking Bites" since my oldest daughter decided she didn't want to ride in the backpack anymore, and I needed some way to encourage her to go more than half a mile."

Third Place Wild Landscapes, 2010 Northwest Exposure photo contest: "This particular cave is a lava tube formed 1950 years ago during an eruption when lava flowed from fissures on Mount St. Helens. Moss was growing on the walls where the light hit. Steam was rising up from the rocks where the sun gave warmth. Water was dropping from the cave ceiling. There was a lot going on here, a bit of an underground ecosystem."
