A great day in the snow!

Sunday February 17th Chiyoko, Chizuru, Eric & I set out for the Cooper Spur Stone Shelter from the Tilly Jane Trail Head at 3800'. The Shelter was about 4 miles & 3000' above us at 6800. Cloudy damp weather on the West side of Mt. Hood gave way to clear blue skies the east side making for an excellent day out on the mountain!

Searching (in vain) for crabs!

A hopeful start!

Chiyoko I got to spend  a lovely weekend down on the Coast with Pascal & Kazuko. Sunday morning we were up early with high hopes of catching Crabs from breakfast. Alas it wasn't to be & we returned home hungry & empty handed :^).. We also got a quick hike in to Smugglers Cove & the Devils Cauldron.

Looking down into the Devil's Cauldron!

A Superbowl Sunday Snow Shoe!

Superbowl Sunday 2013 we set out on a cross country snow shoe mission to Palmteer Point. Along the way we also tagged Tri County Ridge (also known as Ghost Ridge in some guide books on the region). Our lunches on these trips are becoming more & more elaborate :^) Todays offerings included Sake or Whisky, homemade Guinness & cream cheese frosting cup cakes & cooked hot noodles :^)..
