Cross post from tgr..

HikeforTurns sent me a pm regarding a high N face in the sawatch range and I decided it sounded like a good idea. My non- mag friends Scott and Luke decided to join in. Couloirman did a great TR for this same mountain a day later, but he said that more stoke is more better, and we had so many good photos I decided to do another TR.

The Arkansas valley got quite a lot of snow, and a lot of it was fogged in making for a beautiful morning. HikeforTurns got this great shot of Princeton.

Some shots of the long skin up:

Which was followed by a boot pack:

All the while, we were eying our potential lines:

The last bit of the climb across the ridge was fun and interesting:

Off the top, Luke:

I have a bunch of photos just like this one. Stop making so much snow spray around so I can get photos of you, HikeforTurns ;)

HikeforTurns even made a cool sequence:

Just a great day, thanks for the beta from the Belford TR, couloirman, glad the wind came up a little and gave you some free refills the next day. Great photos, HikeforTurns, wish I got some better ones of you. April is such a great month- pow, corn, bikes, whitewater, it's all good :D

1 word comes to mind when looking at those pow turns, "luscious".....oh, and maybe "jealousy" too.

I have a Canon EOS 10D, and a Canon Digital Elph 450. Believe it or not, this trip I took the little feller. You can tell in the lack of crispness in the zoom shots. The photos with the biglines tag were taken by Goldenboy.


thanks!

I'd like to know how you did that sequence thing. Is it a certain program.

hah.... I was wondering about that.
Those pics are still really good for regular folks but actually not as crisp than others from HikeforTurns.

Because those in the "TR - 4/7/07 Better late then never" ( http://209.97.214.134/talk/viewtopic.php?t=3602 ) are way sharper even though the light was worse.
