for some experiements with gear and photos.
Nisqually was full of virgin snow...45 inches of it!
Just HERE in the picture...
There is so much fresh POW you can see the track to Camp Muir at 10,000.
Being on a solo trip, I had planned to take the easy route up to the base of my all time favorite play spot. The base of the "Double Razor" . I like to build a snow cave and leave my gear so i can takea few runs without a big pack. Wicked awesome turns! I dream of doing a 360 flip between the two ridges and then another gainer off the second lip... I'll work on that one.
After some digging and sun bathing I made a nice hot lunch of spicey Thai noodles with a phat chicken sandwich and soem chocolate covered mango! MMMMMM ready for a few more turns!
I had enough day light and food in my belly to get up the next ridge and take a few pictures of the view. The wind started picking up around 5:30 pm and I wanted to be back at the car before 7 :00pm.
The view from my snow cave is always pretty awesome!
