The Visitor


After relaxing at camp and eating dinner we received a visitor.
Image

I thought he was just after my socks but he was pretty much just curious about everything.
Image

Image

After taking 5,000 pictures of the marmot we had our dessert, blueberry cheesecake.
Image

The color started getting better and even our friend the marmot enjoyed a look.
Image

Image

Image

Sleep came before the time for long shutter pics but I did wake up to take a couple. I still need some work.

how's that sd800is treating ya? pretty sweet, huh?


Great little camera for sure! I recently got a G9 too because I wanted more pixels, more controls, RAW (although I haven't really seen the benefit of that), and also be smaller and less expensive than a dslr. The plan has worked out well for the most part. It takes better pictures but it also requires more knowledge of f-stops, apertures, etc than the 800IS. I'm still learning all that slowly but I think the G9 will essentially become a gateway drug and lead to the real deal at some point. I'd just try to get or make a really good chest harness for it while riding.

You have the dslr and the 800IS right?

I think we were both too focused on getting out that we didn't take many pics of the type 2 exit. That and your camera lens had a spot on it! :)

well, I've been really interested in this TR.

I've been interested in general since I've yet to hit the aloha camping/fishing/swimming extravaganza trip, and especially after your echo boat taxi TR with the shot of Aloha free of ice in the background.

Great TR.

I'm glad I didn't go ride my snowboard on them thar hills.

Those cups look horrible.

The pond skim is one of the cooler things I've seen in a TR. Ever.

I guess the future plan is to skin to Aloha when the ice is just breaking up, nail some really hungry fish, ski price and agassiz, and skip the swimmin' part.

Thanks BCR.

and McPheet.

Morning

Morning color.
Image

Image

The sun soon warmed our tent and surrounding rock.
Image

Our kitchen included granite countertops and a bay window.
Image

Go ahead and laugh but you'd be stretching too if you hiked 8 or 9 miles the day before too.
Image

We had to exit fairly early so we stayed closer to camp looking for a few good turns.
Image

Image

Image

The view of Aloha was gorgeous.
Image

mmcpheet drops first through a slot above a decent little pitch.
Image

Image

I follow.
Image

We traversed left on foot and saw this little guy.
Image

We walked past a cool granite pool that we envisioned was heated with a Japanese monkey chilling in it.
Image

Back on snow we take what we can get.
Image

Image

mmcpheet flirts with a waterfall.
Image

Image

Image

I get in on the fun too.
Image

Image

Image

Time to put the breaks on.
Image

Image

One more little shot to the lake.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The Exit

We tried to exit to the east closer to Waca and Pyramid Lakes to see if we could find a better route through the cliff band.

Pyramid Lake.
Image

Streams.
Image

Flowers.
Image

And the cliffband.
Image

Good times.
Image

At Toem Lake we go on auto-pilot to the top of the falls we we take a small break before the last stretch to the road.
Image

We made it. :)
Image

We celebrated with bacon cheeseburgers at Strawberry Lodge and called it a great trip. Good times. Thanks mmcpheet!!! 8)

Sweet. That looks like an awesome trip. That campsite rocks! And amazing pictures as always, thanks for taking the time to post all the chapters.

Wicked cool TR. Love the surfin'.

Wifey and I hiked Echo to Ralston and Aloha just last Friday (day before you got there) and Horsetail to Ropi about a week earlier.

Small world eh? Maybe I should buy one of those splitboard.com t-shirts so that we can recognize each other...
