Peadalmashing Big Cottonwood

Bottom of the Canyon, going up.

Pine forests = getting higher.

White stuff: higher yet.

A momentary reprieve from climbing at Mineral flat, looking up Mineral fork and the distant Cardiac Ridge---all still skiable in Mid June.

The mountaintop finish: Climb from 4500- to 8300-feet elevation, and with Team Tandem-Trailer Continental's much slower 1800-foot climb makes 5600 feet of vertical for the weekend---not bad stats.

The descent with Reynolds and Gobblers to keep me company.
