The doors open at 6:30pm; program starts at 7pm at the Burke Museum in the U District at the corner of 17th Ave NE and NE 45th St. Come early to get seats, and look at or purchase John’s new book.

Flying in his home-built airplane, John has amassed an amazing collection of photos of the mountains of the Northwest — jagged peaks, hundreds of glaciers, and vast untouched land as far as the eye can see. John’s stunning images and hair-raising tales have been assembled into a new book, Snow & Spire: Flights to Winter in the North Cascade Range, which is drawing praise far and wide.

  1. I attended Johns presentation at the Burke Museum tonight. I really enjoyed it. Alot. I love the video of what geologists do for fun…playing with steam on Mt.Baker. All I have to match that is opening my hot oven with out burning off my face.
