ASOIAF HOUSES — House Stark of Winterfell ( is one of the Great Houses of Westeros and the principal noble house of the north; many lesser houses are sworn to them. In days of old they ruled as Kings of Winter, but since the Wars of Conquest by House Targaryen they have been Wardens of the North. Their seat, Winterfell, is an ancient castle renowned for its strength. Their sigil is a grey direwolf racing across a field of white, and their words are “Winter is Coming”, one of only a few house mottoes to be a warning rather than a boast. Members of the family tend to be lean of build and long of face, with dark brown hair and grey eyes. )

Mount Rainier National Park, Washington

I drove to Rainier for funsies today. I’ve never been. Conditions changed from rain to snowstorm over the course of 2 miles. Got wet. Fell off a tree. Almost hit an elk in my car. Had a blast.

More adventures over on my Instagram and Flickr :)
