    Storm Peak, 10,500 ft, Steamboat, Colorado

    This is a different kind of trip report for a different kind of trip.

    We had summitted Storm and its many subpeaks several times over the past few days, arriving by a series of gondolas and lifts; and spending hour upon hour skiing aspen and pine glades, through steep meadows filled with giant soft powdery bumps, and down screaming fast headwalls.

    Its so great to have a partner to share so many different adventures with.

    We stopped for a break and enjoyed lunch on a sunny patio, high above the foothills of Steamboat.

    MichaelJ went over to the edge to catch a closer view, and asked our friend, Doug, if he'd mind taking our picture.

    It was then while we were posing that he asked me, and I said yes.

    congrats!

    what an awesome locale for a proposal! I had the pleasure of working for the Routt NF for four summers. Couldn't think of a more beautiful spot. The Yampa, the Sleeping Giant.

    Beautiful!

    and again congratulations!
