Desert Spines - 2010

 As a southerly flow begins to make its way into Utah's red rock country, bringing with it cold winds and dry powder, I can't help but wonder if the spines and gullies are in. Memories of the great 2010 winter are still fresh, when the snowpack was fat and sexy....

Even at 7500' there was enough snow to take it all the way to the desert floor. 

Some sweet looking lines at 10500', and a lot more wind.


the "look but do not touch" spines

Well, if I wasn't nursing two subperiosteal hematomas and a flesh wound (its a long story, but essentially I ate shit on to some rocks, hard) you know where I might be doing some exploring this week.
