Tree on the Ridge
« on: March 12, 2019, 09:41:22 am »

I was skiing into a backcountry ski hut and stopped at the top of the wind blown ridge.  And yes, this is Yosemite!

A fine catch.

I'm glad you didn't get blown off the ridge. It looks fierce and cold.

As Eric said, fierce and cold. How high is this location?

Thanks for your comments.  I know my wife was getting chilled waiting for me.  Horizon Ridge is just over 8000 ft.  (sorry for not converting to meters) and follows a trail the Ostrander Lake where there is a ski hut.  Of course this has been an exceptional winter and the powder was phenomenal for the Sierra.
