Turtle Mtn.

We went down to the Pass for the long weekend with some friends, and stayed at their place in Bellevue.  It was fricking windy that day, even more so than what the pass normally experiences.  It was the first time I've been afraid of literally turing into a kite.

The Frank Slide debris from the top. Not exactly what I'd call a pleasent wake up call!

Aw shit man, shit; we shouldn't have taken a lunch break...

I honestly didn't like Turtle Mtn.  The views weren't very good, and it was kind of boring.  I also have serious questions about the elevation gain Alan gives.  1250m? it felt more like 800 or 900m, or maybe my mind was too pre-occupied about getting back down to fish, I didn't really take note.
