|A beautiful day around Christmas provided an|
opportunity to do as I did last year, plant the
winter gear cache
|About 10 kg. of warmth and supplies|
|with the Inland Sea shining in the distance|
|A few days later and the weather has turned|
|With a leisurely late start I arrived at the summit around 2:30.|
Plenty of fresh snow and things were looking good for tomorrow.
|This is the first time I've ever shoveled snow into|
my tent to make a level sleeping platform.
|about 1AM I awoke a little cold to put on|
a fleece jacket. The rain had stopped and it was
bright enough to see outside unaided.
|By morning though the good snow was shot|
and all the effort spent carrying up my
skis was for nothing but exercise.
One of these years I'll get a sunny, powder
filled morning. Missed it by 1 degree or so.
