Field Season Begins
It's that time of year again - Field Season Begins! In a week I will be off to Old Harbor for a 6 week archaeological excavation and today the first of the crew arrived. Chase has worked with us on Kodiak before and he is an avid skiier. So he decided to come a little early to get some skiing in before the dig begins. And that brings up the sad part about field season - it means the end of ski season. The snow is still great for skiing but once the field season begins I never have time to get away up into the mountains. Or rather after a day of digging and screening dirt I am usually too tired to want to climb a mountain. And so ends ski season.
But for the next week Chase and I will still hit it hard every afternoon. Then it will be off to Old Harbor. Below are some pictures of Chase fresh off of the plane getting in some turns on Pyramid. Patrick
