|Joe Johnson scoping lines on the flight in.|
For us the trip began when we all road tripped from Salt Lake City and points around the north west to meet in Spokane, Wa. In Spokane we gathered our gear and food in the appropriate piles and headed north to Golden (bring your passport). The trip seemed very surreal when we arrived the morning of the trip start at the helicopter base. The excitement really ramped up, I for one have never flown in a helicopter. We shuttled gear, food, and people in 3 different flights of about 20 minutes each.

In the end we were all much closer having shared many experiences in close proximity. There were a few avalanches, a concussion/black eye, a few hangovers, lots of powder turns, a bit of naked gallivanting, and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
