8.3 miles and 2950′ in elevation gain. At the Cooper Spur Shelter on the Timberline Loop, the wind was EXTREME ~~ the kind that will knock you off balance. We actually watched water freeze while cooking dinner.
Mother’s Day cake and beer. It was so windy, this is the best we could do for a photo.
It seemed like a good spot until Charles’ tent continually was bowled over by wind. We moved it closer to the shelter.
We were in a wind tunnel down here with sand pelting against the tent.
Kevin couldn’t keep anything still so this is our only night shot.
A little photo shoot inside the snow filled Cooper Spur shelter.
Heading out in bitter cold wind.
