So this is a report of a trip I took a little over a year ago. Better late than never I guess. Didn't get as much riding in as was hoped for and that is why this is a report on a trip more so than a trip report. Also, there might be a BN shot or two in here... So if that's not your type of humor, stop reading now! (there are no jewels or junk showing though) :roll:

Anyhow, on with the show! Last winter was pretty much non-existent up here in AK while you all were crushing it down in the lower 48 (the shoe is on the other foot this year, haha). So Jdoneil and myself got the hell outta here and flew to Reno to go to the 2011 Kali Splitfest! Where we were just a little bit starstruck
Image

and the Snow Was Deep!
Image

but it was HOT out, too hot for clothes
Image
...this is where I got a pro call out in. "Tom Burt, I can't believe you're a pro. I'm so much better than you!" I yelled as I put my clothes back on. Racking up the GNAR points baby! (when in Rome)
...I musta been high! on some California meds
Image

But thank goodness Tom's a good humored and all around exceptional guy!
Image

So that wrapped up the "splitfest" portion of our trip. There are a number of photos and words here: 2011 Kali Splitfest photo/stoke/trip report thread. Once again, it was great to meet you all and if you're ever in AK...

So Jd and I went and visited some local attractions
Image

and hiked some cool features in the sun
Image

Image

Then we prepared for our first real adventure
Image

yes, we're ready!
Image

well, maybe...
Image

then came our first challenge, the log crossing...
Image

One of us chose not to cross it... (how not to cross a creek)
Image
Image
Image
Image
Sorry, it wasn't funny at the time, but that Really made me laugh.

Then our goal, Red Slate, came into view
Image

and on our way, we thought we'd hit Pinner!
Image
But the debris at the bottom said No Way
Image

So we set up camp (and dried out some gear/boots)
Image

and woke up the next morning to this
Image
Image

So we made a hasty retreat :nononno:
Image
Image

to these
Image
...not So bad, I guess. I guess

Then we paid homage to Mt Whitney
Image

and tried our luck with Powerhouse
Image
No Luck! Howling Wind and bullet proof snow is all we found :scratch:

So we made our way North past Mono Lake
Image
sorry about that, I kinda warned ya

and up to Tahoe
Image

where we spied this gem
Image
Jake's, Eagle Falls? I have know idea
Image

But we had to climb it!
Image
and yeh, it's a nice view from up there
Image
with a nice pitch
Image

and we were told that when in California, you definitely need a ice axe. So when in Rome...
Image

Image

Image

and what a day!
Image
TAHOE!
Image

Then we moved on to the Desolation area for some new views and some nice tree riding
Image

where there are some more steeps too
Image

and a really cool church for those that need one/don't consider mountains their church
Image

And before leaving, we Had to get at least One chair ride in, all be it a WET one!
Image

'Til next time, all those lines on the East side will have to wait and I'll just keep on dreamin'...

In Jdoneil's defense, I take neked photos via self-timer. The action photo was taken by one of the Kloster twins as I sped by. Generally no one sees me take neked photos, only the finished product. In my defense, well, HAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA

SnowSavage would you kindly smack D next time you see him.. If you're not too busy taking pictures of D riding down something buck ass nekkid.

Nice TR! Too bad I didn't get to ride with you last spring at splitfest. This TR makes me sad seeing all that snow :(
Btw, your Whitney pic is actually Mt Williamson (2nd tallest in Sierra). But that's ok cuz it's a way radder mountain than Whitney :D
Nice to see you got Emerald/Section 20 chute too!

That Sierra wave pic over Tahoe is sick

It was great to see you two come down. Im glad you scored some pow lines out on the crest. I would be more careful of full nudity in California. You could be kidnapped by a bunch of tye dyed wearing weed smoking Hippie chicks on their way to burning man

Hmmmm. Maybe I should take some nude shots then. The California hippie chic reaction sounds like a wicked good time, save for the pubes. :disco:

Solid effort though gentlemen. :headbang:

Sweet! Nice to see you guys made it up hole in the wall! That day on the Plateau was so sick! My best run of the season last year. And that was a good year too.

Thanks for the info on where we rode BG, as well as letting me know that I still have no idea where and what Whitney is. :oops: :roll: Next time... We'll ride!

SPLITRIPPIN... Thanks for the reply. Your reaction is exactly what I'm looking for and I thank you for that. :lol: :lol: :lol: But please don't involve Snowsavage for he is a great riding partner, and once again... I'm my own photographer. Anyways, he's jumped across the BIG pond once again.

jbaysurfer, as you could see our best riding was with you all at the splitfest and I thank you again for that. You All were Great Hosts! No sooner was the "fest" over and we totally lost sight of all that POW looking for Big Lines. Oh well, once again... Next time!

and TEX, :doobie: :doobie: :doobie: That's Exactly what I was looking for! Dammit, missed out again. Oh well, next time...

Buffy, Like2Ride? Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

Peace out all! and once more, 'til next time (no more nudes, I promise) :mrgreen:
