Cross country skiing

Cross country skiing on the Kennicott river, springtime, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, Alaska.

Hey Folks,

I had to show this image from my most recent skiing outing. Here I take the last in a run of drops that started with the mountain in the background behind me (Bonanza Ridge) – with all that descent, I’d gathered a lot of speed, probably several hundred miles per hour. I was lucky enough to pick my line well in advance, and come right by my tripod. I’ve included the last in this series here below, without me in the image, to show you what an immaculate line I took, right between the boulders, and what a carve. I mean, does it get any sweeter?

    I am beginning to think you have a camera crew following you around on these escapades with all these self-portraits….

    Hey Mark,

    That’s not technically a “self-portrait” .. it’s a photo of my jacket, in action. I just happen to be part of the scene. 🙂

    I also found out how to use the “intervalometer” on my camera, and it gives me a few more options on these kinds of things.
