    Gallatin Crest

    Sometimes, it's nice to just go for a long, quiet ski. This was a solo trip I took from the family cabin near West Yellowstone to Hyalite Reservoir, about 100 miles or so. I could add words, but I don't think I need to.

    Holy shit! Like up Bighorn, past Mt Holmes and north from there? That's a fkn impressive route! Closest I ever came was an attempt west to east up Fan Ck, hoping to drop over to Mammoth, fucked up routefinding and dropped north in to Stelleria Ck, getting out at midnight somehow avoiding all the terrain traps.

    You did mo betta...
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    I started pretty much in town and just skied toward the mountains, which is honestly about as good of a route as any.
    Fawn/Stelleria/Fan is a great xc loop, if you can believe it!
