Waterhouse Peak – The Easy Way

Postby Vaca Russ » Sat Mar 01, 2014 8:31 pm

We just experienced a nice storm. Sport and I drove up to Luther Pass today to bag another Ogul peak. This peak is a pretty easy peak to bag unless you try to do it in over two feet of fresh powder. :)

Not much to write about, so I’ll just post the pictures.

Sign at trailhead.

Pickett’s Junction in Hope Valley.

At the summit we ran into two kids, Kyle and Ashley. They were enjoying the fresh powder. We took their picture and they took ours.

Hi Russ,

Here is a better picture of us near the summit.

We are still in the market for some backcountry ski equipment. All of the locals (all kids) had on their backcountry skis. We really need to get some. :D :D

One guy asked Sport, "How are you getting down?" She thought it was a trick question.

She didn't realize he thought she was an angel and could fly back down the mountain. :D \:D/ :nod:

Sorry, I'm tired. Have a good night!
