Bushwackers first foray into the back country.
May 13th, 2006 Long John Silvers(white pine) drainage area.
This is about a month over due but I now have pictures so I figured I post it up.
This was my first "real" backcountry run that I have done. It involves hiking up the american twin forks peaks. then dropping down the backside traversing into white pine canyon and following that down to the canyon road.
Vertical drop of 5000 feet

Me and Scott nearing the top, it took us 45 min total hike. Most people take over an hour;).

sorry no skiing pictures down sadly, but it was 4000 feet of great corn that ended in little bushwacking slog out. the slog out included creek crossing, skating, fall timber, and massive avalanche debris field with tree 3 and 4 feet aorund just taken out like tooth pics.
