Ok now I see how this area works ... just some more pics adding some from the Crest in wintertime
Going up the hill ....
Just a view but later found out this is a XC ski danger area
Looking east ... often see hawks, eagles, et al soaring on thermals from the valley
... and looking down the west face ..
People can just take the tram, but then they miss out on all the lung-busting exercise.
XC skiers up above but they were soon hiking right after this point
The mountains change through the seasons and hopefully I can capture that.
