Spirit Animal party last night. I was a spirit wolf shaman (of course) and had a great time partying!!
Green suit morning started with a ride from Jake and Mark. They are some college boys from Western. The ride made me think about how different I am now from when I was 19 or 20!
It was snowing at the top and raining at the base of the hill. We were lucky, everybody was saying the storm was going to shut us down. It came in a few degrees colder than expected and we were able to add some snow up top!! Just goes to show the importance of staying positive!!
Eric, an old instructor buddy gave me a lift down the hill. He has his second child on the way!
As I strutted out to the road I saw a blue Prius start to pull over. Adriann had picked me up a week earlier, and apparently enjoyed the conversation. She even remembered my name because her Irish father is named Albert. We spoke mostly about Ecuador and children's ski lessons.
The day was sunny and you could see Table Mountain. I was of course wanting to find a partner for the backcountry.
As I rolled up to
|rain runnels and hoarfrost|
The second run was fun, until I got picked up in a tiny wet slide!!! I was able to stay calm, stay on my feet, wait for an opening and them rip out of it to a safe nob on my left. We had been very careful all day, and knew it might slide so it wasn't a big deal and we were ready for it. Hikes 25 and 26 in the books.
Heather gave me a ride home and I was stoked to make a new friend.
