Timberline, Mt. Hood, OR - Sept. 16, 2006
Okay so we cheated and used the lifts. But we did do a little hiking once things got tracked out.
Waking up in the morning...
As we uploaded the sign read 6'' new with 32'' drifts.
Didn't take long for the easy access stuff to get tracked out though.
Short hikes would lead to gems like this one...
Once that got tracked out, like a run later, we opted to brave the chocolate chip field.
Bluebird for now...
For the most part we nailed it when it came down to timing. The clouds were in and out all day and would always seem to part as we started our run. Which was convenient to say the least. Navigating thru the chocolate chip field with bad vis would have spelled certain doom. By 12:30 or so our windows for visibility were diminishing. After a few blind runs we bailed but not before stopping by the Mt Hood Brewery.
Sure glad I brought the rock/pow board. Some rocks were hit but no cores. Haven't looked at the edges yet though.
Nothing like a some freshies to get outta that summer phunk. Sorry no action shots. Seems like everytime I would get ready the clouds would start coming in or someone or group would snake your line.
On the drive home B busted out the dvd player. Watching Chapelle's show took the sting of traffic in the rain away. Especially after the 2006 Race Draft started. And some of the results: Blacks - Tiger Woods; Asians - Wu Tang Clan; Jews - Lenny Kravitz; Whites - Colin Powell. I laughed so much I lost my appetite.
