A very long day of ski touring to Thunder Lake.
During the winter, it was almost 15 miles and ~2300' elev gain with much of the trail barely broken. No matter, it was an awesome day.
The day started with a small group of us (Wendy, Theresa and Dave). We suited up, skied to Ouzel Falls and then the hard part really began: Skiing where people have not been. The breaking of trail was hard work, but the views of the divide were rewarding to say the least.
After a little hunting around for the trail with our navigation shaman (Dave), we made it to the lake that was surprisingly and pleasantly calm.
After 15 miles of skiing, I went to Safeway with seemingly all of Boulder! I was hungry enough where I bought a lasagna. Wendy chastised me and said "What kind of Italian are you?!?!?!"
I was a hungry one! 🙂
