Ya Larry I am picking up what you are laying down. We must have seen over 20 cows in Picnic Canyon....we will have to go back when the 1st snows drive them off the mountain for the winter. Never had the chance to chase a cow on skis before. Maybe this winter? Happy Trails Larry.
"Mountaineering is more than climbing (exercise), panoramic views, and wilderness experience. It is also challenge, risk, and hardship (self reliance). And it is not for everyone. Those drawn to the mountains can find them exhilarating and irresistible, as well as frustrating and sometimes even deadly. There are qualities to mountaineering that bring inspiration and joy in a pursuit that is more than a pastime, more than a sport – a passion, certainly, and sometimes a compulsion."
--Mountaineering: "Freedom of the Hills", Chp. 1
