Egads! Great shot...the red gear really shows off the photo!

Great shot, Richard. But I would turn it 90° clockwisely; it would look more dramatically. :)

That was a fun one!!!

Greetings YBMW, Polytropos, Kerstin and Daughter O' Mine, Thanks all for visiting the amazing self arrest and commenting.

YBMW - I think Mariko must have been in her screaming red phase that day, although the gaiters came from mom's old stash of stuff. But, all the better to be seen, which really wasn't a problem since we were the only ones on this side of the lake. It was a great day.

Polytropos - That would be a great "hangin' in there poster" having it turned 90 degrees. Great exposure! This wasn't quite as steep as where Mariko just came off of, being the out run, but it still has a fair slope down to the water.

Kerstin - These kids these days! Luckily the snow was soft corn so it wasn't like sliding on gravel, other wise I think Mariko would have put a fleece back on. The day was really warm and comfy, perfect for getting out on the snow and getting a tan.

Mariko - What can I say, good job.

Thanks again for visiting.

Cheers,

Rich

Greetings Billy, Thanks for visiting Snow Camp and self arrest training. The kids had a great time playing on the snow and sliding around. The weather was very nice so short sleeves and no gloves were dress of the day (probably because her gloves and fleece were black, not red).

Cheers,

Rich

Hey, we didn't raise no sissy kids. We're mountaineers. We eat our Ramen noodles cold and dry. Actually the temperature had to be in the 80's and there was not a cloud in the sky, so it was very warm, except where you were in direct contact with the snow (where Mariko kept Seiji most of the time when he was near her!).

Cheers,

Rich

I'm just wondering from which picture you copied the snow in. ;-)

Richard Ryer on October 29, 2007

Greetings Billy, I remember the picture of your friend getting himself a rest. Very clever. Time for beer.

Cheers,

Greetings Bruce, You know what they say about what goes up....just depends on what kind of fun you want to have coming back down. Yes, Mariko does have her of site and she gets in some great shots, so I have to stay on my toes. It is a lot of fun when we get out in the woods. We have an annual Glacier Basin Steak Night where we go camping and cook gourmet meals on the campfire. It is a hoot. So, thanks for visiting and I am glad you get a kick out of the kids. They can do the craziest things.

Cheers,

Rich

What a wonderful picture of your lovely daughter Richard! (and welcome to Panoramio Mariko!!!!! :D

It's very evident Mariko's inherited your love of the Mountains!

Richard Ryer on November 1, 2007

Greetings Lilypon, Thanks for visiting Mariko's slide into fame and commenting. I think the kids do have a better understanding and appreciation of the hills and I trust them to be safe out there when they go tromping about. It's fun when we all get together to go someplace and play.

Cheers,

Rich
