My neighbour Dave and his son Kyle joined me for a tour at Taylor Lake on a chilly,
but clear Saturday morning.
Here are Dave and Kyle, after I repaired Kyle blister-damaged feet. Kyle, I think you should give
your boots to your dad. They clearly don't fit. This is at a meadow just above the actual lake
after about two hours of uphill touring.
This was the first look at our target once we got down to the lake. For future reference,
turn left off the trail to get up to the lake, rather than up the drainage towards the ridge.
Since we wound up a touch high above the lake, we had to drop some elevation through the trees.
This is just before we dropped to the lake.
It was a bit chilly pretty much all day. What a nice look at Castle Mountain across the lake.
I think this is Panorama Ridge. It looks like there's some decent ski lines up here for sure,
although there's some serious avalanche terrain.
At the end of the lake, the uptrack goes through some challenging rocky terrain, but then gets up to
this moraine that skied really well.
You can see the full path of this couloir from the top of the moraine.
I think at the back of this photo is a pass that brings you to Boom Lake. Here's Dave
climbing up to where I'm at.
