This place is special place to Me, it was my first overnighter where I met most of the people I tour with now. The trip to saddlebag lake and then on to greenstone lake is a long slog, so a plan was hatched to make the way out a little easier The trip back was going to be a breeze, but the trip in….errr up was a rough go We had a couple of new faces in the gang WJB and Malikia, JimW,s husky After biking,hiking,and finally skinning we were ready for some fun Nothing technical, just buttered corn Swanny dropin in and rippin WJB,s turn for turns JimW. drops as Mal looks on Imitationfunk in the Sierra granite Riding down into camp Imitationfunk soaks up the California Sun While Swanny gets His grub on JimW brought out His new sleeping bag. I thought it made Him look like Gumby and….it makes his butt look big Mal seemed to like the camp location He didnt like the Doggles though. Lasted long enough for a pic Sunday we headed for the Mt. Conness area And it was pure Corntopia JimW Mal setting up for a corn slash WJB fantail shot Imitationfunk Swanny had to leave early Left his signature Rewards for a hard days work May 25, 2013 at 1:44 am #668542 imitationfunk 85 Posts Nice work Tex! I’m certain that bike ride has done irreparable harm to my back. Not sure what I’m more stoked about. The Sierra corn or finally eating at Whoa Nellie Deli. I can’t believe you can eat like that 8 miles from the trailhead. It makes me want to load up my gear and hit the road. Speaking of the road….Shasta! Shasta! Shasta!

Thanks for having me along This was the view I was greeted with Saturday morning enjoying the view from the top of Greenstone enjoying the view of our handywork from camp Jim clearly outclassing the rest of us where style points are concerned pointing the way to cornitopia on top of the Conness Glacier with nothing but untracked creaminess before us shredded on the way back to camp then Momart for dinner 🙂 imitationfunk I am planning Shasta or possible return to Conness whichever is holding up better for June 6th through the 9th May 29, 2013 at 5:43 am #668548 wjb 163 Posts Sorry , pics now fixed.
