Hey Howard

I know what your saying. Here's seamless 3 inch ice on Ruby Lake this morning. Hope all is well at the hut. http://www.facebook.com/pages/John-Dittli-Photography/183112928925?v=app_2392950137&ref=nf#/pages/John-Dittli-Photography/183112928925?ref=mf

Tamarack (Rock Cr) snow free hiking
Ruby and Fourth Recess via Mono Pass (fairly serious post holing)
Duck Lake via Duck Pass on skis a couple of days ago.

Here's a pretty fun video from Topsy Turvy earlier this fall.

I love living vicariously in an East Side winter in your photos and videos. With my Curry Village ice rink skating skill level, there's no way I can manage skating in those places. It's a major joy to be able to get such a vivid sense of the experience. Thanks.
