Thanks for hosting yet another fun get-together Barb! I appreciate your assistance helping me purchase a couple new items -- at a discount. I'm glad AlcanRider talked me in to coming, despite my exhaustion. Yesterday some friends and I skied up to Ship Lake Pass and it completely wore me out as it was only the second time I've been able to get out on skis this year, due to lack of snow. Here's a view from the top of Ship Lake Pass, elev. 4,050'. The climb to the pass is a grunt, but WELL worth it. I sure hope we get lots more snow soon as the snow coverage is sparse, especially in wind-blown areas, and we skied over a few rocks yesterday.
