At least I hope it's back, winter that is, and it seems to be here in AK! Hopefully to stay. So here's a little photo journal of our recon mission today, Sept. 29 2012.
and some face shots. Yes, FACE SHOTS from Oct 1st 2012 further on down this forum...
And away we go!
heading towards our goal
past a little distraction
above and away from the train of hikers on a nearby mountain
so uh, what do we have here?
Deep and Consolidated Snow is what we have Here!
Pits and Pow!
pits and POW!
and we're off again, past some more distractions
and making some short turns after a long walk
So what did we learn today? Well, first off... IT'S BACK!!! It looks stable, and sitting in a lazy boy watching snow-porn is no way to get ready for winter. Fruck I'm sore!!! But I can't wait to get back and actually attain that goal, and maybe some side trips to boot.

Hohes, It's Happening!!!
So my apologies to everyone not here now, because you should be! And Here is... somewhere where you are not apparently.
Anyhow, we went back out again today 10/01/12 and...it...was...AWESOME!!!
So we started back towards the same mountain/goal again
past more crevasses
and over more hills
where were we going again?
more distractions/lines for another date
(there's a skier and dog in there somewhere)
This picture will give you a clue as to where we are
Tahoe maybe? No, there's no snow there. The Fjords of Norway? Doubt it. Must be somewhere in BC or coastal AK...
Anyhow, bring on the POW/stoke!
Whiteroom in October?
Yes, FaceShots in October!
and the damage done
So I hope you all have enjoyed this, I DID!!!
and we're out...

Is that the Jewel? Holy shit, wanna be best friends. I really need to get out more.But Ellen kicks ass - if she had a beard it would be much more haggard. -Jer

so do I go skiing or steelhead fishing this weekend?Its not that I suck at spelling, its that I just don't care
Days on snow 12/13 season: 66
10-02-2012, 12:19 PM #19
That is great!
Looking forward to a killer year down here, all the mountains are dusted and it snowed hard while fishing this Saturday.
10-02-2012, 12:20 PM #20
That so early for the rock. And Pat, steelhead suck you can't even keep them. Skiing is way better.But Ellen kicks ass - if she had a beard it would be much more haggard. -Jer

Nice pics, keep em coming! That Gabe guy knows what he's talking about, eh?Drive slow, homie.
10-02-2012, 01:39 PM #22
1) We were not on, nor did we ski Jewel. Close though
2) I would go fishing this weekend. Our 3 day window is over and it's pissing out once again, with no end in sight.
3) Yes, Gabe is a great ski partner who does know what he's talking about! (and he does like to talk)
...and if anyone missed that faceshot up above, here's a closer look
oh by the way, these are all pic's from God knows when and they've all been photoshopped. So stay where you are because there's nothing going on here. Nothing at all...
10-02-2012, 04:53 PM #23
I think I know where then. And pissing down low means snow up high!But Ellen kicks ass - if she had a beard it would be much more haggard. -Jer
10-02-2012, 05:20 PM #24
...and I love getting high!
