Obstruction Point area
-Texted my TAY friend runcle for Hurricane Ridge conditions
-Drove to end of Obstruction Point Road, a dustbath
-Scoped lines along the way. Lots of short patches near the road
-Realized I could see the top of my destination from the parking area
-Took the skis for a 1-1/2 mile walk. Lots of hikers, included one who said he had skied out there a few days before
-Found the intended goal with some faded tracks, transitioned at the top
-First run was steep and a bit chattery at the top. A-size suncups with lips oddly pointing down
-Ice axe helped on the return bootpack
-Topped Point 6536 and did it again
-Returned to the truck
Q: "Are you going skiing out there???"
A: " I hope so, otherwise I'm carrying all this junk for nothing!"
