Boot skiing (glissading) (Dennis is in the center of this pic) down 1100 feet from the No. Gardner ridgeline. The finest boot glissade on scree I've ever had. Not as great as a snow glissade of course, but still fun.

The band of goats shown in my previous pic was in the green area below the scree area.

...this slope. That was probably the best plunge stepping I've ever enjoyed. Cool shot! -Bob

Thanks Bob, it was the highlight of the actual hiking aspect. The first 600 feet just went zip. Towards the bottom you couldn't plunge step but it still was easier than what was to come (all that downed timber)

I'm looking forward to your Bonanza pics. : ))

Dean, that was the scree basin I was referring to when you asked me for beta. True, it is easy to descend, but can you imagine slogging up it? I got to plunge it with a fresh dusting of hail (my picture).

Great story on that pic Paul. Interestingly enough, a Twisp resident informed me that yesterday the Gardners were covered in storm clouds with thunder and lightning. Looks like Dennis and I picked the right day.
