Pastoral...ahh the memories.  Hope you had a nice place to sleep and aren't living out of a ford escape like i was while bumming around turnagain arm.  Did you get up to summit lake? Great skiing off the road there.  Thanks for the pics.

Had relatives to stay with, no freezing car camping. There was a noticeable snow and wind-affect gradient across Turnagain Pass, so I figured Summit Lake would be worse and didn't check it out.

T. Eastman I saw tons of stuff worth skiing on my flight  Grin  I think I saw 4 of Davenport's "50 Classics" from the plane.

Jonn, I was ribbing you a bit, the vistas in those pics were amazing with so much terrain that entire lifetimes could be spent exploring on skis.

Sounds like a wonderful trip!

Jonny, you lucky bastard... That looks absolutely ridiculous! Glad you and Erin had a great time up there. I guess I will put that place on my list now...
