A chilly 7 couldn’t be a better temperature for driving 80 miles With Mouse and Ben to find powder. I hope the kids on this bus will one day be smelling french fries Instead of slowing suffocating by the toxic diesel fumes arriving to school in a stupor.

After arriving at Powder Mountain we set out on a morning hike. Shortly in, I pointed to a far away peak. “Were going there” I explained why, we shed a layer and were off.

Just before reaching summit Mouse shouted over the slight breeze” Look How Far We’ve Came” Ben shouted back ” What Do You Mean I Can’t Even See Where We Started. Laughing, I snapped a shot to show our progress. The top right corner in the photograph is close to where our morning ridge line walk about began.

10am-The summit of James peak a good achievement by any means. We all cracked open a cold one taking the physical and physiological demands of mountaineering and pissed all over them(literally). Ya Ben thought it was a bit hypocritical but I say if you can handle it then why not.

After several thousand vertical feet down we hopped on a chair to head back to the top. Just a few minutes ago we were way up there. Mouse opened another PBR and quoted “And the beer I had fro breakfast wasn’t bad. So I had one more for desert.”

We finally found the “AAASSSPENS!!!” on our first chair lift up we spotted a clump of aspen trees that had zero turn complete fresh snow for the taking. So we did what we do best and went and weaseled or way over to them getting a two solid runs where again the only tracks we saw were our own.

Back at the truck with just enough energy to drive home we came upon a new digger tradition. If your on a road trip and you forget your wallet all you can eat is the twelve pack your homies will buy you and what ever you actually remembered to bring. Lucky for mouse he remembered his colored shark gummies.

Yes, we made it back 80 miles to Salt Lake on veggie-oil. We thought today would be one to remember ending it with a treat at the local Soup Kitchen. Helen rode her bike to bring mouse his wallet.
