I haven’t shared as much as I intended to from Targhee, but I’ve been, well, busy. I have been told I’m attempting to do too many life-altering-and-stressful-things in the same year. Which is most likely true. And sometimes it makes me feel a bit like Greg did during this little incident. He built this jump after a night of whiskey, so I like to call it the “Makers Mark Jump.”
At Grand Targhee there is a bowl between the main mountain and Mary’s Nipple that feeds directly into a deliciously named run – Middle Earth. Middle Earth consistently had the best powder on the mountain.
It is officially ski season here in the Wood River Valley. Both Sun Valley and the Blaine County Recreation District trails are open and groomed – just about three weeks earlier than last year! So on this Thanksgiving, I had a lot of be thankful for.
Today I did some shooting on the Harriman Trail north of Ketchum. The Harriman Trail is a 31km trail that runs from the Sawtooth National Recreation Area headquarters to Galena Lodge at Galena summit. The trail is named after W. Averell Harriman, who developed Sun Valley in in the 1930′s. It is an old railroad bed, which makes the trail wide, and perfect for grooming for both classic and skate skiing.
Here are a few of the images I captured today. You can also see one more over on Jeff and I’s challenge blog - Two a Day for Thirty Days.
