April 19, 2015, Stars at Washignton Pass
« on: 04/20/15, 10:51 PM »

Just a leisurely car trip with David's Westfalia looking for a place to ski.  Joined a half dozen other cars camping at the WA Pass.

Our snow-monster friend:


and other companies:


late night stars over Liberty Bell:


with a late Alpine start, headed over to Silver Star:


variable snow on Alpine but super scenic:


Met a group spent three nights there, sounds like a great idea.  The snow in the trees was not very helpful, especially for day trippers.  The upper East slope looked very inviting, maybe next year. More pics here.

Great album! Nothing like the peace & quiet and cool air under starry skies at WA Pass.

nice pics Kenji! good to see what all the lights blinking mysteriously in the snowy meadow in the middle of the night came to be...

Did you see the paraglider late afternoon?  it went right over us then disappeared beyond Silver Star.


hope you don't mind if I add a few pics.  such a beautiful day, fantastic views!

any one up for Glacier? could be good coming up... if it doesn't warm up too quickly.

and the day was capped nicely with an almost 3K run of sun softened goodness, all the way back to the car, and a beer, and no boots!



fun to meet you all!

Stefan, nice meeting you and your neighbor friend (sorry, forgot her name).  Nice shots, looks like you guys had a great trip Sunday and better skiing than ours.  Yes we did see the paraglider as we were leaving the alpine.

Hope I didn't disturb your sleep too much...
