Seventies Sierra Snow
While a Junior at UCLA my roommate Harry and I took the Sierra Club Basic Mountaineering Training Course, and we also went out for ski trips.
I believe these views are near the top of Bear Creek Spire.
Fast slides down the hill.
That's me, ready for K2.
Surfers out of water.

Note my super-cool retro Pumas.
On this ski trip Harry is so excited to learn how to telemark that he keeps climbing up and skiing down the hill for an hour, while I watch at the base of the hill, totally exhausted.
High altitude + sun + inadequate sunscreen = terrible sunburn. The inside of my nose is sunburned, my face is already blistering, and I cannot shave for another ten days.
