    Donner Peak 3/6 (and a Squaw huck from 2/28)

    as the ta-hos already know, donner peak is a quick skin with some easy-access steeps. great for multiple laps. here are pics from 3/6 - a HOT sunny day in tahoe (like we've had ever since - for the summit-goers!)

    Mmm... backcountry hottie... [/Homer-drool]

    Boy, am I glad I got in on the ground floor by securing a custom photo deal with Britney before she became famous. (wink, wink, remember that one Brit?)



    But, who's the hottest Tahoe Maggot? May I suggest some type of mud or oil based wrestling competition to nail this down?

    That's easy, its a four way tie between me, Arty, Nater, and Walter. It's like the bear habitat at the zoo but with skis.

    What do you say girls - mud wrestling next weekend between the five of us . . . actually, I guess wsd will get a break due to injury :-) We could sell tickets and finance next year's passes!

    i'm up for "oil-based" wrestling (whatever that means - phUnk???), but no mud!
    -brit
    PS would also consider jello
    PPs dont let WSD out so easily! with a broken wing she will be easier to pick off in the first round, thus advancing our standing!

    Excellent...

    PS. Yeah, WSD should be included. Otherwise, she'll just hang back and talk smack about how she could have kicked all your asses if she wasn't sidelined with this shoulder thing, blah blah blah.

    Please....stop!!! You had me at "Oil-Based."

    My God I *heart* you (not just your strangely disturbing avatar, which in the right conditions makes my pants tight.) Get rid of that bown-haired human jackhammer and be mine. Once you've gone fat, blonde, and in debt you'll never go back... or something like that.

    um, tippster, you're scaring me!

    edit: not that phUnk doesn't, but i've become numb to it. as for the aforementioned photo deal, why dont you send me the sign you want me to hold, and i'll see what i can do! hehe. anyway, isn't it enough that the leki poles are featured so prominently in the above photos? i love them, btw.
