It looked like it was snowing up where you and Trekker went, while us guys were heading out. Thanks for the good company young lady and the invite. My face was burnt worst than it felt, my eyes have been puffy the last two days like I had been stung by a bee or something. Much better this afternoon.
Piece of cake.

Your pics are fine, ridgeline! I might have to borrow one of me on the snowboard.

I think ridgeline had the worst sunburn, but hikerduane was close! I missed a spot above my glasses so its burnt and swollen. My knees and neck got burnt too, but not too bad, just feel it in the shower. You would think as much as we get out, we would remember the sunscreen! #-o

We didn't get any snow up there, but the snow up higher got deep and heavy. After that nice ride you guys got on video, the second ride looked like a beginner tumbling head over heels! :retard: Yesterday I felt like I got run over by a truck, but today I feel pretty good.

I had a blast out there with you guys! Can't wait to do it again!

What a beautiful trip it looks like you all shared together! What a different world it is there covered in snow..as much as I am sick of dealing with the snow..it is very beautiful there I do have to say....How many feet would you say is where you were camped at?
Your sunburn faces are cute I think :D ..but im sure hurt a little. Hikerduane your hotcakes look very very good..did you bring syrup and butter for them? I have thought about bringing pancakes to make on backpack trips because I get so tired of oatmeal for breakfast.

SN & Ridgeline very beautiful pictures! Glad you all had a fun a safe adventure :) Thanks for sharing it all here!

madeintahoe, I usually bring some homegrown strawberry freezer jam if I have some. I forgot twice to bring some oil for the frying pan, so the pancakes stuck a little. I rarely bring butter for pancakes, more stuff to make a mess in the pack. I found a mix in the healthfood store, but that wasn't what I had on this trip I found out as it was some mix that was in a bag from early March when I missed a trip with some others into Lassen.

You should hook up with Sequoia on a trip. She was asking me if I wanted to go, I thought some of her friends might want to go.
Piece of cake.

Glad you all had a great time. Thanks for sharing the photos. Wish I could have joined you, but that drive would have drained me.

It was a 5 hr drive for me, the last 1.5 hrs was tough. I got home at 12:20am and fell asleep in the front seat of my truck til 6am! :boring:

Trekker said he got home at 5:30am. :retard:

It was a great weekend! :D I finally caught up on sleep last night! :D

I am just loosing the pain in my skin, and almost fully peeled. Last night I caught up on sleep, sleep lost mainly from sunburn, I did this once before and swore to never do it again! Snowy, you need to commute to the Sierra taking turns sleeping/driving.
