When I'm looking for great hikes I sometimes search online for photos of different areas. This website exists to return the favor.
Hillhaus.com has been hosted on Dreamhost since 1998. It operates on a modified PHP/MySQL blog script developed by B2Evolution. I'm constantly developing the interface and design.
As of 1/1/2008: 616,475 large images have been viewed.
I've finally installed a shopping cart and setup an account with Google checkouts, but until I get everything running smoothly please use the "contact" button at the top of the page to email me regarding any photo requests.
Environmental, public and non-profit organizations have permission to use my images without charge as long as they notify me first.
Add yourself to my announcement list and get periodic updates when I add new photos.
We were going to go backpacking this weekend but Sarah's brother's dog swallowed a tennis ball. She had to watch her nephew while the dog underwent surgery, and two of her friends from Michigan ended up visiting, so we took them up to Chasm Lake on the east face of Long's Peak.
Jason and I backpacked on the Long Trail for two days. We climbed Mt. Abraham and then slept in an unlocked ski lift cabin on the top of Mt. Lincoln. The Long Trail is one of the most amazing backpacking trails in the country. It overlays the Appalachian Trail near the southern border of Vermont and runs all the way up to Canada. It would take about one month to hike the entire thing. It isn't huge in length but it's rugged, beautiful, old and well-kept. The low elevation was very welcoming to my lungs — a week before climbing Mt. Abraham (4,006 ft) I climbed Mt. Yale (14,196 ft) in Colorado. Abraham is the fifth tallest mountain in Vermont. The first is Mt. Mansfield, which my Dad, Jason and I climbed a few years ago.
