|Birds at the Neary Lagoon are fun to watch. This guy followed us down the boardwalk.|
When I left Santa Cruz yesterday morning, the surf was pretty much pumping. Swell looks real fun over the next few day with an easterly wind. Watch your tides, winds and swell, and you can be sure to score out there right now. Snow is not too shabby either. I fit in three lift runs yesterday afternoon. Variable pack powder off the lift, with areas of wind buff and, and some shin deep semi-tracked a quick hike away. The snowpack is easing a bit and picking up stability. The backcountry is skiing really nicely. It is still dangerous out there and the PWL, while buried deep, can still break. Anyway, plenty of fun to be had. Hope 2012 goes out well for ya, have fun next year.
