    You two are awesome! And that's the best way to see it!

    Decades ago a friend and I hiked to the top and skied Cornice Bowl one summer night under a full moon. Made it all the way back down to the base of Stump Alley on slivers of snow.

    Have a blast up there!

    Man look @burt with a modern bike, new helmet and baggies. And no, you probably won't wear him out, or outride him!

    Keep the photos coming. I love to live vicariously!
