I imagine that the name of this photograph will leave most of you scratching your head, so let me explain. First of all, this is also Kirkwood. Not much skiing going on when this photo was taken, but that doesn't mean that Kirkwood is pointless. I dare say that Kirkwood is just as beautiful in the summer as it is in the winter.

This is one of my favorite places of all time. I have a few, believe me, but this place is special. This is Kirkwood. Specifically, this is the top of the mountain, the double-black diamond lift, The Wall. The top of the lift (at the upper right of the photo) sits at about 9400 feet above sea level, with Thimble Peak above it towering to over 9800. I've skied here most of my life and if I'm extraordinarily lucky, I'll be skiing here with my kid when I'm my dad's age.
