No matter the season, the PNW has hiking and beauty all year round. The day after Christmas and to finish off 2014, I did my last hike (or casual walk really) to Big Four Ice Caves. These stunning caves really take your breath away as you approach them and see how massive they really are. There are posted signs warning not to enter the caves for good reason: because of falling chunks of ice and avalanche warning. Entering the caves was not one of my wiser decisions this year. If you go back far enough you will see a small waterfall as well. I am pleased with the pictures that I came out with, however because of the great safety hazard I honestly wouldn't do it again. I took some on 35mm as well but who know when those will get developed. If you want to see the whole gallery just click on any of the images below :) Also if you haven't gone out to Big Four yet, do. Just don't go into the caves, people have gotten trapped inside, not us but other have.
