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.

The red buildings on the right are rorbuer, abandoned fishermen's cabins. Ours is one of the ones right on the water. This photo was taken around midnight, when the weather finally started to clear after 2 or 3 days of grey clouds.

Looking out at Svolvær from our campsite. Svolvær is the largest town on the Lofoten Islands (population: 4,197 in 2005), and a great place to spend $10 on a bottle of cheap beer while waiting for the ferry to Narvik (one of the northernmost cities in the world and where we caught the train to Stockholm).

The man, the legend — Erik Thoreson. Erik attended my high school as an exchange student and was one of my best friends. I promised him then, 9 years ago, that I would visit him someday in Sweden. This photo was taken during dinner in Gamla Stan.
This former mining town is located on the eastern border of the Holy Cross Wilderness. The buildings (we found 3 standing) are about 130 years old and located 11,500 feet above sea level. We camped here our second night.
