Month 4 – March 2006, Mt Bachelor

I made the long drive to Mt Bachelor from the Willamette Valley with my buddy Andy for some spring snow riding.  We arrived in the parking lot to clear skies and a bit of fresh snow and knew it would be a fun day.  Most of the day we spent riding off the backside of the mountain, finding numerous stashes of fresh snow in the open bowls and glades.  Gotta love the long winding cat road to the Northwest Express though after riding the goods.  I took some riding shots, but only retained a few after a computer crash shortly thereafter (none which were worthy of posting).

Below is a scanned shot from a point and shoot film camera of some powder turns at Bachelor from a few years earlier that kind of sums up how I remember this March day going.  Needless to say, it was an excellent day of riding in the sunshine at Bachelor!
