Thank you, madeintahoe. Also thank you digital photography for allowing me to take hundreds of shots to accidently stumble upon three decent ones. :D
I'm still rather convinced that you can achieve more than you've ever dreamed of if you just lower your standards.

:nod: When I started to seriously backpack, cameras had film, and I had to learn to pace myself, having only 6 or 7 rolls of film for the longer trips. Also with a speedster pard, I had to learn to frame and shoot or get left behind. Now I am taking my noob backpacker friend out there who has a digital camera (with panorama!) and aside from taking forever to take every shot, he feels he has to take a picture of every rock and tree on the trail. It drives me bonkers. But at least it gets me pictures of ME for once! :lol:

FeetFirst,

One month later and things really have changed! The lake is completely ice free as well as most of the route up to the crest of the Crystal Range.

Sport and I fueled up on organic, wild brookies and took the girls up to Price, Agassiz and Pyramid.

They slept well after this hike!


Look for a full report in the peak bagging section. I will post it when I get the good pictures from "Sport".

Thanks again!

Sorry for not responding earlier, but I just noticed your post. #-o

Talk about change! Very cool you guys headed up to the top of the Range -- with your dogs even! Off to go find the full report...
