John's Second Post

"Nikki was taken on a back country ski trip at the crest of the central 
Cascades. A place called Kendall Knobs that consists of a closed off
logging road that takes you to the top of the mountain.
We got up to around 4,400 ft and found ourselves in a clearing with a
couple of feet of new snow, blue skies, and a very nice temperature for
hanging out for a bit.

New pair of back country skis getting broken in on some fresh snow. My
leg muscles would be complaining loudly the next day.

My partner for the day leaving me in the dust - he's a way better skier
than I.

Ski poles in the low clouds and shadows.

Evergreens in the fog.

Some very cold looking snowboarders/skiers camped out on the snow - no
tent, just a tarp and some bivy bags.

Low clouds in the valley below and blue skies above.

The way back.

A dead tree in an interesting place.

Nikki does not like being pointed into the sun.

Ski tracks.

My "Freak" of a friend enjoying the warm sun and a snack.
