We are hitting the road and headed somewhere above the timberline. This is a photo from the last trip- taken in August. Skiers who want to say they skiied every month of the year come here. What they ski down, they hike back up. We’ll be there to watch.
See the dot of black 1/3 from the top of the snowfield? That is a skier.
I’m packing a camera, a journal, my favorite black pen. A winter coat and summer shorts, my favorite hiking shoes. Laptop and Blackberry are coming, too — but when you don’t hear from me you’ll know the reason why. There are no towers here.
