    You might think I being overly optimistic, but I'm jonesing to get boards back under my feet.  Yeah! Lets get together and refresh our avalache knowledge and do some companion rescue exercises. The location is to be determined but probably in the TA/Chama area. I'm looking at locatons with enough snow to make it interesting, where we can play with our gear not far from the car, and then do something fun (although it's all fun to me). If you have a suggestion please profer it.

    In a repeat of a classic outing, let's head north over the Martin Luther King holiday weekend downhill/ crosscountry/ snowshoe around Monarch Pass. Signs so far are hopeful for the ski season, and snow at Monarch is generally reliable. We will head for Salida to establish a base in a comfortable house or cabin, and spend our days in winter sports in the Monarch Pass area. Either a Pajarito Powerpass or a Local Powerpass offers three free days at Monarch, and otherwise tickets are relatively inexpensive online. Age 69 and up is free; seniors are age 62-68.

    Ever wonder about the physiological state referred to as screaming barfies, that strange attraction that some climbers have to water in its solid phase, or why some folks think having four pairs of gloves in their winter kit is better than a good idea? If you’ve ever thought that strapping sharp pointed objects to your feet, and that carrying objects in your hands that would make you a  serious threat on a medieval battlefield is an interesting idea, than this trip is for you. Welcome to ice climbing.

    For a spring 2020 Canyon trip, we will head to an area that we have not visited since 2007: the Escalante River, about a mile upstream from its confluence with 25 Mile Wash.

    This will be our usual drop camp trip, in which we make ourselves a comfortable camp with chairs, tables, two-burner stove, wine cellar, etc, and explore out in every direction for five days of hiking. It can be a little warm in May, but we will have the Escalante River nearby to take a dip.

    One of the classic river runs in North America is the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, running through the River of No Return wilderness. We had a wonderful trip down the Middle Fork in July 2016, hosted by Terry Morgan and Lorrie Bonds Lopez, and catered by Hughes River Expeditions of Stanley, Idaho. Between the rafting and kayaking, fly fishing for trout, the semi-desert scenery, and fabulous food, it was a trip to remember. It is time to organize our return trip.
