TR: Alta - Thursday. October 18, 2007

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Oh wow. It was that good.

Up at 5:30am, shower, quick food, hit the road...same drill as before.


A cold early morning...


...turned into a bluebird day.


Jason (pardon the blurriness, apparently my camera has decided to suck forever)


Me (Jason's camera works a lot better)


Jason (it's good this is blurry, because if it wasn't the awesomeness of it would bring you to tears)


Me wondering how far the white goes...


More storms on the horizon? See you this Saturday, bright and early.


Full 160+ Picture Gallery here.

Website TR here.

I think Jason will add onto this (or start his own) a bit later.

Thanks, Jakecast. GREAT photos! I especially like the blurry one. Very artsy. I bet there about 10000 jealous Bears out there.

I am envious. I have two trips to Alta and my first one is 79 days away, but I still keep counting, hoping it will come soon than later.

Good stuff again Jake. I'll be in that neck of the woods in late Jan and like Ray I can't wait.

Jason skinned up, I hiked up. Six times.

Cheers,
Jake

P.S. anyone going tomorrow send me a p/m. I'm thinking about blowing off some physics for more turns.

Thanks so much for the pictures Jake !!!
Love the slideshow.

You remind me of a guy who used to disappear to the mountains of Vermont whenever it snowed in his college town.
That was 1972 and that would be me.
