The Dalai Lama when asked what surprised him most about humanity:
“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

PKelly,

Those trees looked eerily familiar, then I read the caption. I'm not sure if its the trip we had a couple weekends ago or I've been blind all these years, but its hard to beat a powder day at WC, specially if you are willing to hike all day. Nice shots, I'm envious of your backcountry access......

Unfortunately, with the new dust layer, the season just got a lot shorter in the San Juans.
The Dalai Lama when asked what surprised him most about humanity:
“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
