X. Alpental

After battling rush-hour traffic for longer than we should have had to, Kyle and I met up with Steve in downtown Seattle. Steve was polite, and didn’t comment on my smell, but did kindly offer me a shower when we got to his place. He also put my gear outside. I was wiped out and sore, but we made plans to do a short tour up at Alpental the following day, just to check out the valley. We’d then head further east, to attempt a ski-tour/rock climbing, multi-sport day. Alpental looks like an awesome mountain, I wish I could have been there in the winter when the lifts were spinning. While up near the top of the Alpental valley I spotted a short but fun looking chute, and went to go ski it.
