 Ah Spring is Here.   

Sorry this is so late but I couldn't get at my pictures due to the fact that I didn't have any software to read the .nef files on my camera and had to get photoshop to convert my files to .jpeg. Anyway I got a call from Dan Medved about wanting to get out for a last trip with his buddy Nate before he moved to Alsaska on Tuesday. I've got plans enough for decades on my hit list but the Tenmile/Mosquito has been my focus this year. The other day on London Mtn we spotted an really nice looking line on Mt Buckskin's South Face. The South Gullies of Loveland were also looking pretty good. The East Bowls of Loveland were in as well. It was going to be a long day. We started at the Buckskin Joe trailhead at the plows end of the Kite Lake Rd. The plan was to head up Kite Lake Rd to the North Ridge of Buckskin. The drop in onto the South Face. Ski over to one of the Loveland Mtn gullies, boot up it and ski the South Gully on Loveland. We'd the hike back to the summit of Loveland and drop back into the Kite Lake drainage and our vehicles.

On the way up to the trailhead the night before I got a nice call from Brennan, who was just coming off a successful day on Little Bear. He was in as well. Our group was set.

We made decent time to the summit of Buckskin and had a sweet ski.... More words and pictures at my site
