This Space for Rent

Now it’s the end of the alpine rando season

Well, that's it for alpine brevets this year

4000 feet is lower than High Rock summit, Peavine summit, or Barlow Pass, and the roads crossing the two summits are not maintained for winter travel. If there was an absolutely clear and warm indian summer day, I might be tempted to rope in a friend and do Sellwood to Hood & Back, just so I can say I covered all of my pre-2012 permanents, but it’s not something I would do by myself (no cellphone service, chance of alpine blizzards, hypothermia, and death? No, this would put a severe crimp in my plans to, if they don’t hurry up and get that cure for mortality, die peacefully in my bed at age 125.)
