I just returned from a fantastic climbing/ hiking trip in Washington! Everything went very smooth. Swimming with the loons in Hozomeen lake, Glissading down St. Helens and climbing Sahale, Summer doesn't get to much better!

Nice videos.
Here's my thoughts; I know you didn't ask for them ;-)
Entertaining, except for the music in the two and three. I thought the second was going to be something like Philip Glass when it opened but the techno sound ruins the tranquility of the lake hike (or maybe Youtube degrades everything). The speeded-up opening of the traffic to the trail head is brilliant; I will steal that idea, thank you.
The fades/transitions with the pixellation is also a bit negative, and so is the sound of the stream in the second video/lake hike which you should duck along with a lot of the wind in various shots.
The third one also had the soundtrack too high, couldn't hear what you were saying and it just got annoying til the end with the slide down the hill.
Nice though, thanks for sharing those.

Just now had time to watch your vids, wish I could have been with you. I'm stuck here in the southeast for the time being, and get really tired of hearing people whine when the temp gets below 35*.
I have family in Oregon and plan to get out there in a couple years. I also have a film canister full of volcanic ash they sent me after Helens erupted.
Looks like beautiful country! And it was summer too!
