Final Night in Seattle

Just as I start to call Seattle my home it's time to move on. My last night in this magnificent town was quite amazing though - a quick visit to Pike Place, a peek at the Steinbrueck Native Arts Gallery (no photos from there unfortunately), happy hour cocktails at the Zig Zag cafe, sushi at Tsukushinbo and more cocktails at Barrio. Oh man.

Smith Rock

one week of climbing in a very special place - few climbing shots because it's difficult to photograph and belay at the same time - also included: slackline nighttime headlamp art
