  Ebbetts Pass, June 5, 2016
Sharing joy and beauty with my wife and our dogs Makisha and Penny.

Our first destination from Ebbetts Pass was Dorothy Lake.

Next we headed to the ridge below Ebbetts Peak. From here we had a great view of Hiram Peak and Folger Peak (the peaks that surround Highland Lakes.) Here you can see Penny and Makisha with Hiram Peak and Folger Peak in the background.

There is another great view in the opposite direction. Michele, Makisha and Penny hanging out above Sherrold Lake and Kinney Reservoir.

The ridge is also the entrance to the four dragon chutes, Chinese Fireball Dragon Chute, Hungarian Horntail Dragon Chute, Swedish Short-Snout Dragon Chute, and Welsh Green Dragon Chute. (Yes, I am a big fan of the Harry Potter series.) I would ski the latter two chutes this day.

I took a non-stop run all the way down to Kinney Reservoir. It is included as part of the following video.

On the trip home we saw snow plants.
