It's fitting that the new venue in the Second Saturday ArtWalk The Bergschrund is featuring the mountain photography of John Scurlock. The Bergschrund is the new tap room of the NW Peaks Brewery, located half a block south of the brewery.
Since 2007, John has been involved in a project to photograph every glacier in the lower 48 states, in cooperation with a glaciologist at Portland State University. He’s also photographed in cooperation with researchers at the USGS, Western Washington University and the University of Washington. And he’s collaborated with North Cascades National Park and North Cascades Institute, as well as organizations such as The Wilderness Society and the Skagit and Whatcom Land Trusts.
Enjoy stunning views of the places we usually see only from the vantage point of our skis: the North Cascades, the Cascade Range in Washington and Oregon, the southern Coast Mountains of British Columbia, the Rockies of Canada and the US, the Columbia/Purcell mountains of BC and the Coast Mountains of Northwest British Columbia/Southeast Alaska. The plane he uses on these excursions? One he built himself from a kit!
