2004 "Splattski"

A true early Splattski since it was taken in IDAHO. This was taken on Bonneville Peak, the highpoint of Bannock County on August 31st, 2004. It was snowing and raining at the top of the peak and unbelievably cold for an August day. It had rained so much on the way up that I had had to stop and wring out my boot socks three times (think of slosh, slosh, slosh) and so when I wanted to capture a picture of myself on the top, I inadvertently and without permission of either deltaoperator or John Platt, used the "Splattski" arm extension method to get this unbelievable and historical picture of myself. The cheesy grin is due to chattering teeth and a desire to get back down to warmer climes. Here is another pic without me in it (a definite improvement).

Re: Nice...

The color green reminds me of green pickles
with onions on a sesame seed bun.

Now, it's time for my midnight snack!

Re: backyard

It sure is. One of my best friends moved to Inkom and now lives just below the ski area. I snuck onto another of your local peaks this summer, Old Tom just to the south of Pocatello. Great views from there of a neat area.
