A little backcountry skiing up Second Creek
Margit & I went skiing, up Second Creek, w/ Charlie and Kathy King. Second Creek is N. of Berthoud Pass towards Winter Park. Beautiful country. Here's a picture looking South, when we hit treeline.
We ended up at the Gwen Andrews Hut and had lunch. It was pretty windy up there. Nice to have some shelter. Here's Kathy at the hut.
After lunch, we headed up to the ridge. The higher we skied, the windier it got. At the top, we pulled off our skins, faced down and made turns all the way back to the truck.
