Got up to Buckhorn picnic area early and had some coffee while waiting for Dan. The day dawned cold and clear with some breeze, temp just above freezing (35F/2C)
Some snow.. brought crampons and ice axe but did not need them. When I need them I don’t bring them, go figure…
Managed to set up out of the wind but in the sun. It was a beautiful day.
Dan staying out of the wind, he made lots of QSOs on 40m, two on 17m and none on 15m.
Dan chatting with Charles, KM6CEM on 2m FM
Instead of heading back down the way we had come, went down to the ski area and then the jeep road. Dan had never gone this way before.
Little reservoir near top of chair 1 is full due to the rainy winter
We ran into Todd at the ski area and chatted a while. He said they had 500 people on opening day this year!
