Butler Gulch - first tracks

andy k. and i made first tracks up the road geared up quick- a check of the beacons and were on our way!

Didn't quite beat sunrise but pretty close, so peaceful to skin up in the trees.

a nice easy mellow rolling approach
many options once you get up into butler gulch-
way up in that saddle to the west was the high point for a different ride last summer up to 13250'- lotso hike a bike!

andy was happy to be out in the backcountry
next time were gonna trade skis for a run- i want to try these Scotty Bobs made in silverton, CO.

soft snow and untracked unlike last time up!
again i chose to get more turns per climb- andy chose a more graceful approach- his turns looked sweet!

Here is the only piece of vid i got- rest is on andy's camera but im tryin to get that knee down!
