My brother has been in town for the past month. He’s been teaching English in Uruguay for over two years and was finally able to come home for a few months. We’ve been making videos for him to use in his work.

There wasn’t much photography for us yesterday, but it was nice to get out of town, and we made a few videos. Took the main road down through Tacoma/Olympia before heading east to the mountain. This time of year, access is only available from the west, so it was an in-and-back trip. We stopped for a decent burger on the way back in Elbe, then managed to skirt the Tacoma-Olympia traffic on the way back by cutting north and east on route 161 after passing La Grande.

Jon also managed a quick discussion with one of the Rangers at the Paradise base.
