Snow & Spire: Flights to Winter in the North Cascade Range
All MBVRC supporters are cordially invited to the book release party for North Cascades pilot John Scurlock’s book of winter aerial photographs.
November 30th, 7-9 PM, Skagit Station Meeting Room, 105 E. Kincaid St, Mt Vernon
John will give a slide presentation on the making of the book. The first copies of the book will be for sale at the book signing party. Dessert and refreshments will be provided by North Cascades Institute.
The book is filled with John’s remarkable color photos. The book also features several illustrated essays: Lowell Skoog on the history of winter mountaineering in the North Cascades, Dave Tucker on the geologic origin of the North Cascades, and an account by Jim Nelson of the first winter ascent of Mount Slesse’s iconic NE Buttress Route. The 192 page coffee-table size book retails for $60.
John is a board member of MBVRC, and frequently provides photos for volcano research as well as helping hump loads up the mountain. He is also a contributor to the upcoming USGS Professional Paper on Baker’s Holocene geologic history by Kevin Scott, Dave Tucker, and Jon Riedel. He is arranging with Mount Baker Volcano Research Center to sell his books to raise funds for volcano research. Watch for the announcement that the books are available on this website.
