After considering an assortment of destinations for the day, finally decided to take advantage of the low avalanche risk and sunny weather combination to complete my Skyline Lake journey which started on  01/13/07.

I met up with two cool dudes from Seattle and their beautiful canine companions and we had a great time heading up the trail to the viewpoint, then circling back to check out the lake and then onward and upward out the ridge to the boulder field.

Obviously high on the mountain air, my two new buddies felt up for the challenge (and risk) of bagging the nearby peak.  Without being properly equipped for such a route, I opted to hold back, take care of the canines and serve as the trip photographer.

Glad to report the summit went well, as did the return butt-glissade.

It was a beautiful day with periods of heavy wind bursts to remind you that even though it looks like paradise, you should still always be prepared.

Thank you to E3 and Medford for a great day on the mountain!
