Topo of our route...
The knuckledraggers getting ready.
Passing through the fire zone...
Soon we shed a bunch of layers...
Jasper and Hoeft
The trees looked like they were covered in paper pulp... some kind of fire retardant we assume... anyone know what this is?
Skin track stoke.
Huge Crown on the S. W face of Echo.
Hoefty learning to skin for his first time... the hard way.
Jasper and Tim up on the ridge.

Oh, and we were visited by this red tail hawk.
Tim with fallen leaf and lake tahoe behind.
Some mouth watering technical descents.
On the ridge.
This was where we all decided to ride down.
Jasper and Tim at the top of Angora.
Looking down Mini-Hall. A bit bony, and the snow wasn't all that.
Mingus followed me down though...
Only to boot back up.
Jasper getting some sun.
Mingus coming down.
Looking up from Angora Lake... where is Mingus?
He got cliffed out.
I had to hike 1/2 way up Angora Pk. to download him.
Boy was he whining.
But he still beat these slackers down... we cruised down to our car pretty easily... went straight to the hot tub with PBRs in hand... all in all a great day.
