They're kind of fun.
So, in the name of "From whence we came"/"circle of life" or something like that...
I don't have any without snow pics, but I have some pics that are strikingly similar to the ones you took dropping down to Gold Lake. This area is right in my backyard, and I knew that when we crested the ridge we would be dropping down a Northern exposure (holding more snow later in Spring) to Gold Lake. Our main concern from up at this point on the hill was that the snow might carry all the way to the North edge of the lake in which case we were truly screwed.
Mine were taken on June 19, 2009. Here's a quick comparison, your pics on top and mine right below. Pretty cool, huh?
Great RR! I've really enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to the re-ride photos!
