XT riding is pretty much shot for the winter. So we did a XC ski run to explore the Mountain King Mine. No open roads leading into this mine.


Skinning up towards the Mountain King Mine.

This winter has produced a lot of snow which is good. Hoping to get a good snow pack to fill the reservoirs in Spring. They all could use a BIG drink.


There's a good 4' of snow in here.


10 weeks out on the knee. It's coming along slowly.


Mountain King Mining area and one of its buildings.

Complete slide show HERE (38 frames).


Coming down in some fresh powder.


Getting across the mine drainage.

Hope you enjoy this little adventure.

I second Reggie's comment, it's "brilliant" seeing evidence of the progress you're making with your knee repair! Wow! Good on you and Jeannie both!.. The snowpack in that area is awesome for reservoirs and healthy forests. We've had much the same in higher mountain areas, with a bit less but still substantial, most of it melted now, at 6500 to 7000 feet right here. The good news is the weather people tell us we can expect still more snow to come, and that's a promise we can live with!


The voyage of discovery that truly matters is not in seeking new lands but in seeing with new eyes.

Reggie - Thanks for the encouraging words. Much appreciated.

George - Can't be sitting around licking the wounds. Can't be stupid about activities either. Finding the balance has been tricky. Some days are better than others so you've got the moving target effect. Snow so far is good and more is on the way tonight in the mountains. We're at 7K feet and have plenty of snow on the property. Today 50F so it's melting.

Many of us riders enjoy other activities too. I like to share mine and encourage others to do the same. It's kind of cool to see what others are up to in their spare time. Makes the board a tad more interesting during the winter months.

Yes we had a good time sliding around. Tons of places in those mountains to dip in and explore old mining history. We just like getting outdoors and enjoying what the mountains offer.

Spitting rain at the house this morning. Funky weather.
