Beyond The Sky and the Earth 
Finished reading "Beyond The Sky and the Earth a Journey Into Bhutan" by Jamie Zeppa. Excellent book to get me acquainted with Bhutan. The author tells her story of living and teaching in Bhutan. Learned about Bhutan culture, food, history, Buddhism. Sounds like an amazing country. Current plan is to be in Bhutan this May...possibly the Laya - Gasa trek?

This was one of the books that I checked out from the American Alpine Club Library in Golden CO. As a member of AAC you can have up to 10 books sent to you for a 28 day check out. Another nice benefit to members is international rescue insurance.

Swapped in a fresh battery into my motorcycle this afternoon. Looks like I will have company on my Alaska bike trip... Tori, Doug, TIm? Doug sent me an e-mail yesterday... rather than renting a bike he ordered a fat new Harley. Here is a picture of Doug's new Heritage Softtail Classic Fire Fighter edition:

Clayton Peak 

2/27 Sunday with Mike & Dan, Clayton Peak, Brighton. Single ride pass to the top of Great Western Chair. Breaking out the old school boot packing with 5 laps!
The panoramic above was created with Panoramic Factory. My last panaramic(Snowbasin) had better results using PhotoStitch software that comes with a Canon digital camera. PhotoStitch is amazing easy while Panoramic Factory has many slick configurable features. I original is 23,160 pixels wide. If you click on the image it will bring up a larger(yet still 10x smaller) 2,300 pixel version.

Mike carving it up.

Me entering chute, Mike taking pictures. You can see the cute that leads to the untouched snow skirt in picture above.

Dan sliding out of the bottom shoots of 10420 peak 'good buddy'. Left to right lines: Dan, Mike, Kevin. Check out the rollerballs.
