    Flume Slide

    I took on the Flume Side Solo Saturday. However, I did not make Mount Flume summit. Was Breaking trail as soon as I left the Liberty Spring Trail. Mostly breaking trail was no problem until about a half mile short of the Slide. At 3300 feet needed crampons and ice tools to get over 3 ice bulges the size of SUV. Then at 3700 hit a wall snow that I just could not penetrate. After 40 minutes only traveled maybe 20 feet. Realizing that I wasn't going to Summit, just put on my shell pants and slid down. Great Day, lots of fun.

    I was a little disappointed that the Flume trip was cancelled on Sunday due to weather. Maybe after the Twins on Saturday B&G and I can reschedule.
    What do you mean he don't eat no meat? Ok, I'll do lamb.
