Welcome to CASCADE CRUSADES. This site is dedicated to Ben Colin Manfredi, November 27, 1978 - November 9, 2003 and we continue this page in the footsteps of a friend who would expect nothing less. While you are here, Chronological is the best way to navigate the stories on this site. See my Photography/Email page to contact or to see more details. Press on the below photo to visit the most recent story (previous story). And feel free to go to our guestbook to leave a message about your visit. We'd love to hear from you.

Nature seizes you! A mountain's darkened silhouette, a river's calm eddy in the midst of madness, or a blanket of clouds laying your other life to rest and setting a blind man on the road to sight. Each journey into the clutches reminds you of the fury and each reminds you of those reasons to return. These are our journeys and our reminders; the crusades. ~ Sincerely Jason Hummel
