Can't remember the name of this river, but it's on the way up to Paradise.

You can cross this creek on a log bridge and continue up to Carter Falls, which was a fairly easy hike on a well maintained trail.

This picture was one of those "hang on a sec, let me get one last one!" pictures that I saw just as I was turning around to leave the area.

These rocks, I presume, were thrown down by some great landslide or eruption, but I can't imagine the amount of force it would take to move some of these boulders.

I love the tonal range I was able to get out of this image from the bright white snow to the subtle shades of almost black underneath some of the rocks.
