Nice! What part of the Gores is that?
Piney River basin. We got up to the high lake below the Spider but because my buddy's knee wasn't cooperating we didn't have time to get up to Upper Piney Lake or the other basin. It's beautiful though, I definitely want to get back.

Was there a particularly high number of downed trees off-trail in that area? I heard that in parts of the state there is a lot of deadfall in certain below-treeline basins from a massive wind event from that early-Sept. storm. I was wondering if that side of the Gores was hit bad. I'm thinking of doing a quick overnighter there next summer (basically a lollipop route starting at Booth TH and going over West Booth Pass and East Booth Pass, circumnavigating the Spider and the Fly), but my main concern at this point is running into tons of downed trees.

Happy X-Moose Eve from Mount Olympus! Wishing all you BCP folks the best, and I'll check in in 2021 as long as Dooley doesn't kick me in the head between now and then. :D

I was laying in bed listening to the radio this morning, when they interviewed this 81 year old ex sailor, and they asked him if he was worried during these troubling times. He responded, "No, I'm not worried. I am going to shake my ass full of life!" he then began to laugh and laugh some more. This just cracked me up, and I said to myself that I was going to shake my ass full of life all day long. We'll here you go, burning off some X-mas calories hiking up Mount Van Cott this morning, of course shaking it full of life. My kids weren't very impressed. :lol:

Hey @Bob, do you have any bats that can do that? :D

As for @Bob and his upside-down bat picture, that picture was misleading, as that bat wasn't even Scottish. Scots are famous for their engineering skills, and a Scottish bat would've engineered a device to keep the kilt up. Just sayin'.

OK, I just made that up, but it could've happened. But I did see a Jeep on its side, as well as a snowman with two ravens sitting looking at it like what the h-e-double-hockeysticks is this?

Had to do a quick and dirty hike this morning because I'm scheduled to donate blood this afternoon, so Jack's Mountain it was. Still no consequential snow here in SLC. :(

So not much snow down there in the SLC area ... Wow! Just a little on the ground here in Jackson. Could be an early spring. But a bunch of snow here high in the mountains though. Thanks for the pics Scatman!
