After the heater debacle I got out late but still managed to find a spot to park at Snowbowl at noon. First hike of the year and it was a good one. Extremely cold and windy with fresh powder made it pretty hard to hike up hill. I took my time and summited at just before 5 pm. I was moving very slowly at times above treeline with all my head gear on. Except for the wind, it can feel like walking in space or on the moon. I came down well after sunset and enjoyed some stars on the ski run and still managed to hit traffic near town. Today was my 70th summit. I took a bunch of pictures of the scenery.
I'm trying to move to Tucson, but it is going to take me a long time to get there.
