KPT 08Highlights of this year's (35th annual) 30-odd miler day trip included strong South-Westerly winds blasting the route all the way from Elkhorn Crossing up; thick, firm snow over the creekbed; and unfortunately the demise of a very long tradition of pre-trip dinner gathering at Lotty's in Evanston (it had been remodeled into a sport bar :/ - gotta find a new venue for KPT09).
Also new and amazing for 2008 were Larry Swanson's aerials of the route!
12 of the 22 participants summited this year, including Steve Swanson, 69, the co-founder and co-organizer of the tour.
