Every year there are a few hundred crazy people in far northern California that adventure into the backcountry to seek soft white snow and solitude. This photo was captured after an epic ski-down from the peak in the upper left of the photograph. Chris (me) and Mike (dad) were winded, excited, and totally thrilled to be outside and alone in such a beautifully epic outdoor environment. Technically, this photo is not perfect, but in my heart, this is perhaps as close to perfect of a moment I will ever experience; for me, this is winter.
