Hey Guys,
now that I can walk again I made it to the computer! Just kidding, but my calves are killing!
Thank you so much for the great day and for the nice pictures and comments! Brooks your first pic is amazing, looks like it's straight out of STAR WARS.
Dave thank you for inviting me and showing me around!
Your knowledge of the Sierra is incredible! That was one hell of a trip up there. Pretty awesome! Maybe something a little shorter next time, more like Sunday :wink:
And Brooks it was great meeting you and I hope I will see you again too!
I don't think I need to add many pictures, but I will see what good riding pix I have of you guys!? Hey BGnight just to be accurate, it was my second BC trip, but my first real Peak in the Sierra and my highest yet, as you mentioned! I went to Old Mans Bowl with the good fellas at the West Coast Splitboard meeting!

And about the helmet/Ice axe deal! That could be a long discussion and maybe worth another threat. I think that should be completly left to personal preference. A helmet is a good thing, but also a pretty bulky thing to carry :wink: !

Great stuff guys!

That new camera kills it BGnight! What are you editing with?

Tons of good pics, you too fullers!

We got skunked on Shepard's Pass aiming for Big Willy. Around 10miles (rt) on dry trail with overnight packs and boards + HIGH winds + limited snowpack = :( .

Still a fun trip and we made good deposit into the beta and karma bank. :)

Props again on the TR. 8)

I crop/edit w/ adobe photoshop lightroom.
I shot everything fully auto. The camera deserves all the credit. I'm impressed w/ the image quality this camera produces. About 1/10th the weight of my SLR too :). Of course photoshop does wonders to all the photos as well. I'm still a photoshop gaper. W/ all the new technology these days good picture taking is pretty damn fun/easy.
(the first pic is my SLR btw)

It would be cool if they made minipolarizers for p&shoots.

So is there a TR of your big willy trip coming up???

Cool shots, looks like you guys had a nice day. We were sweating it out at the same time further north. Nice of you guys to take the schwalbster on an easy intro southern Sierra tour. :shock:

As far as the helmet thing goes... yeah, personal preference, but another reason I'd recommend one is rockfall, especially this time of year.

Nice shots Henning!
It's not the size of your pixels, but how you use them :wink:

I have less than a dozen shots of me snowboarding in like 15 years of riding so I'm stoked on these.
(you have us backward on last two shots. I can't make more than one turn switch)
und KEINE EIRE!!!
