Super freekin' stoked....!!!!
I love being the mountains in Winter!
It's so amazing what you can see out there.
The majestic Bridger Mountains in Montana!
For a relatively short mountain range
the Bridgers are have sharp
jagged peaks, long elegant ridge lined, and perfect powder snow!

The surreal adventure of solo winter mountaineering.
I froze my ass off a few times.
Lost the use of my right hand for about an hour,
had to jump around in my big puffy down jacket
while setting up camp.
|Bridge Mountain Majesty. So beautiful in full winter gown.|
Not sure if I bruised my big toe or if this is partially due to
Had to question everything;
where to camp,
where to stash the bike,
how fast to move,
what layers to where,
am I too cold or can I keep going?
|Ice climbing boots work well for winter bicycle riding!!!|
Yes, keep moving.
When your almost there,
It feels like perfection.

All my fears and doubts were replaced by sheer joy on the ski up to the top
The mountains are so peaceful, soft, and quite in winter.
