According to the map, there is a road way down that way…. you guys want to see if it goes?

The north side of the north fork is going to be fun after a few more low elevation storms. – The view from Barometer.

…but you didn’t come here for the scenic photos, so here’s Brian, proving that even several days after a storm you can get a face shot on a south facing slope. FKNA

Nice, creamy fall line wind buff for 1700 ft.

Allen and I got in on the action as well.

A rare photo of me.

      That pic was correctly labeled as Larrabee. Winchester does not have that much of an exposed face.

    Was wondering what you guys have been up to out there. Thanks for the update and some pics. The Jan thaw didn’t hit out there I take it

    I’d like to know about Allen’s aggressive hitch hiking.

    so a guy on TAY says that those were cougar tracks. Cougar, lynx, or bobcat: it’s pretty cool to know that they’re out there.

    As for allen’s hitch hiking, we were deciding which would be the best way to approach getting a ride: either having him show a little skin, or going all crazy style and running into the road naked with a rock in hand threatening cars (actually witnessed this in India). I’m not going to tell you which tactic he actually used though….

    The tracks are obviously cougar based on my google image research. The toes are always more splayed. In addition I saw one in SC (yes south carolina) and it had big feet. Keep working on your spelling Sam.
