Sept 30, 2008, Mt. Baker, Heliotrope Ridge corn
« on: 10/02/08, 12:08 PM »

Went for some laps on Heliotrope on Tuesday. The new snow from the preceding week had pretty much all vanished so I was back on the older snow surface. A little firm, but still decent to great snow.







I found this beer in one of the final stream crossings before ascending to the moraines. I was the only car in the lot, saw no one at the camps, and had a fierce thirst so I repossessed it. If it was yours I will gladly replace it at the watering hole of your choosing.

And it's even a good beer!  So if there was a cold beer in the stream and $100 bill right next to it, but you could only choose one, which would it have been?

Nice pics too by the way.

I think the great beer waiting for you was the northwest's way of saying- "welcome to the hood!"

Welcome to the hood, and enjoy the plentiful snowpack!
