Snowing and Getting Dark, Time to Go Home
Wolverine Peak with its 4500 ft front range elevation contributes to the desception that it's really close.  It's one of those destinations that one can see for a long time, and hour-after-hour, it seems like it's never getting closer.  Today, Wolverine summit was just as far as always, but it was a rare windfree day with excellent skiing.

that picture you got of the sunset this evening is amazing. I'm sending that around to quite a few folks, nice work. also amazed at how good the front range conditions look in some of those shots
