Intro: Nine days of above-100degree-heat (in a row ) and a break in the family schedule where all I needed as an excuse to escape into the mountains. I had planned to do some patch skiing near the Crystal Range but decided the four mile dry-approach was more punishment than I needed to endure. Luckily for me I hooked up with the world renowned patch skier named Ã¢â‚¬Å“VetsÃ¢â‚¬Â

Some nice patches you've found. Nice botanical pictures as well. Here in OR the heat is trecherous too. Temps in the valley are over 100F for several days but in higher elevations the snow is surprisingly good. Hope there is still some left for August.
