Eagle Harbor Book Company will host aerial photographer and pilot John Scurlock to discuss his book “Snow and Spire: Flights to Winter in the North Cascades” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 25.

Scurlock has been flying since 1986, and upon completing his home-built airplane in 2001 began exploring the skies over Mount Baker. During those initial flights, Scurlock could see in the distance the North Cascades, and, inevitably, his interests as a mountaineer drew him to further survey the peaks from his cockpit.

Eventually, the aerial photography that he brought back from his many flights was passed along to other curious climbers who began using his photos as a form of reconnaissance. These days, Scurlock’s work is frequently used for route planning as well as serving to inspire future ascents, much to the appreciation of many in the climbing community.

This, his first book, was published in 2011.

Scurlock has covered terrain from Alaska to California and from the Coast Mountains and Cascades to the Rockies of Canada and the United States. His images inspire climbers, skiers, and backcountry travelers and appear in numerous books and publications such as The American Alpine Journal, Canadian Alpine Journal, Journal of Glaciology, Alpinist Magazine, Rock & Ice, Ski Journal, and Climbing Magazine.

He has provided images for the Washington State Department of Transportation, the U.S. Geological Survey, Department of the Interior and National Park Service and U.S. Forest Service, among others.

In 2018, he completed an 11-year project (in cooperation with Portland State University) to photograph every glacier in the lower 48 states.

He and his wife, photojournalist Ruth Fremson, currently reside on Bainbridge.
