February 13th, 2010: Talking Mountain

Echo Lake peakbagging continued with Becker Peak and Talking Mountain falling by the wayside. JonnyB joined the fun today and we accessed both summits directly from the Sno-Park by turning off Echo Lake Road just before the Berkeley Camp and following the ridgeline. Flagpole didn't look quite as impressive from above.

Even if it hadn't snowed in more than a week, we were able to find some stashes of the cold, dry goods. We got more powdery turns than we expected and JonnyB's rooster tail was in full affect as we lapped Talking.
