I know what you're saying..... oh no, not more ski photos! But right after I published the last blog post, Young emailed me a whole batch of photos she'd taken from the prior weekend's amazing trip up to Illumination Saddle.
Size matters! Click on any photo to enjoy a larger version.

They were such great photos, I was wishing I would've had them before posting that trip report. Not only did Young get some fantastic shots - a lot of them were of me!

And, as you know, when you're the one behind the camera, you rarely get in the photographs.

So I decided why not just do another post of Young's photos? So here is an "addendum" blog post to my Illumination Saddle trip.
|Walking back from taking some photos
Since you've already read the story, this time there will be few words, and many photos (I think most people just look at the images anyway!)
|John and I enjoying the view
So relax and enjoy the rest of the pictures.
|Oh yeah - I'm in my happy place!
|Time to take off the skins!
|Not sure what I was doing here - I'm contemplating something
And by the way, after describing the icicle-like snow that we skied through, one of my friends commented "Oh, you skied through some chandelier snow!"
|Tele-turns in the shadow of Mt. Hood
Now that I think about it, that's exactly how this snow behaved. As my skis sliced through the ice crystals, the particles made tinkling sounds, and cascaded down the slope like pieces of broken glass. I've never seen anything quite like it!
|Enjoying the perfect snow
Until next weekend! :)
