One of the benefits of getting "fit" again is that you can get fit and attractive women to go romp in the woods with you.
After the first snowfall of the year at higher elevations, we managed to squeeze in the very last day possible to climb Wagner Butte without snowshoes this season.
The trailhead starts out around 5,000 feet and summits at 7 something.
The short winter day with more snow coming meant that we did some scooting to get to the summit and back down again, and I kept my camera tucked away for the most part.
(So I stole the three pictures without a human in them from the embernet...)
1)Wagner Butte from the valley below.
2)Fit and beautiful woman.
3)The view from the summit of Talent and Ashland and Mt. McCloughlin in the distance.
4)The view from the summit of Mt. Ashland and Mt. Shasta behind it with a telephoto lens.
So what does Mr. Scott do when alone with a beautiful woman in the woods?
Gets out of the car, puts on my pack, takes ten steps, steps on ice and flips to horizontal landing flat on my face...
"Are you alright?"
"Yeah, I think it's just a cramp..."
