Ughhh! YET ANOTHER East Coast TR?!

After a pleasant round of meadow skipping up north, we headed to Pico Mountain for a dawn patrol on Thursday morning. The lifts had been closed there during a huge storm, and we all had real work to do, so an early start was necessitated. Here’s a crappy photo in the pre-dawn gray from the summit.

If that shot of a cold gray windy summit isn’t enough to get you out of bed for a dawn patrol at your local closed ski mountain, maybe this will do the trick:

Of maybe this might work too:

After a most profitable dawn patrol at Pico, as the weekend drew near we lapped up a few leftovers up around Jay Peak between work. A fresh storm was coming for the weekend, and we weren’t afraid to leave a few tracks to our favorite spots.

    There is an obvious lack of camera pointing compared to Sam’s TR. Sorry to call you out G. Besides that – WELL DONE!

    Great TR, as usual. I read it at breakfast then heard this song on the way to work (thank you CBC Radio 2). Thought I: this is the perfect soundtrack for those images. The video is a bit dorky but the words and music are right on.

      wow. cool band. hadn’t heard of those guys. a little soft (at least the vocals) for my tastes, but i can hear how it works!

      in the same vein that i often think about for a “long duration partially linear schmorgasborge TR” like this one is stuff from Vedder’s into the wild sound track. e.g:

    The frozen waterfall hucks are incredible. Love the BIG old trees too. GP – hard for me to separate the Into The Wild music from the sad story. NICE TR.

      Hey Harv… just saw this now. Interesting comment. I hear what you’re saying, and I know the ending is tragic, but Mcandless’ MO was interesting and somewhat inspiring to me. I’ve never been depressed by that movie.
