Month 12

Month 12

After sleeping in my car in a downpour at the Timberline Lodge at Mt. Hood I woke to foggy, rainy conditions.  With the Palmer lift closed for the season I put on my pack and hiking boots and started for the glacier. Soon the rain turned to snow and the snow turned to powder. I linked 81 turns high on the glacier under cloudy conditions to complete my 12th consecutive month of skiing.
