The snowshoe session
Monday, December 11, 2006

Just the other day D1 mentioned this killer little snowshoe hike that he loved to do, so I figured that I would rent some shoes and join him after I finished some work on sunday. So I did just that. I called him up and Lydia and I joined him for a night time snow shoe session at alpental. Wow were we in for a suprise.

It was killer. You start out by cruising up this super steep hill and then you finish on top this great ridge. The view is amazing and then boom you get the best part. This wicked slope D1 calls tumble hill. There are trees little cliffs and everything you could want to huck a whirl and get your jabs in. Then roll down the hill..... So D1 tells us what to do and then just before he takes off he goes ... Oh yea theres a river at the bottom of the hill you don't want to roll into so try to stay in control while your tumbling.

Of course we were ok but apparently someone else on that trail took the spill on a different trip because the full nature of Tumble Hill was not disclosed. As you can imagine the rest of the trail is boulder hoping along side the creed bed. It is a blast but watch out... After a 1/5th D1 and I were slippin into the creek and falling all over the place. Clobbered by Dr. Black Strap Again.

But hey it was a blast. If anyone out there ever reads this I would love to hear your comments on the Atlas 1350 or better Vs. the Tubbs or MSR's

Thanks for the Trip Dave it rocked Metal the whole way!
