01.29.11 Sky High

A blogger friends I need to share with you a 
view from the top of my world.  
Yes those are full grown pine trees over 50 feet tall. The rocks about the size of a football field.   The snow is about 10 feet deep and I am on the top of a mountain top and the is only accessible by snow machines.  Fifty miles into the back country.  8500 feet or more in elevation.  If it had been a clearer day I would have been able to see the Grand Tetons to the left.  But I will have to save that for another weekend.
You could really get lost really quick in the area if you weren't careful

Where are you? At that elevation it has to be west of the Rockies, but I have no clue as to the specifics. Stunning view, wherever you are.

This is a stunning landscape, and I'd have to probably check in an oxygen tank and clean underwear.
