cbalke First time camping at this sweet spot. The site was a meadow with wildflowers that right beside the creek. The closest thing to a neighbor we had was the beaver swimming back and forth building his dam. @deeboskim thanks for the beta! 2w

cbalke No trip to the Eastern Sierra is complete without visiting a Hot Spring. Hopefully I'm growing their passion for the outdoors. Dirt barbies in training. 2w

cbalke The Eastern Sierra is going off right now. The windflowers are blooming, the weather is perfect and the hot springs are hot. What more can you ask for? 2w

cbalke Searching for the elusive Tenaya Lake Mermaids. Love all the granite around this lake and its sandy shores. I want to get up here to ice skate on it sometime. 2w

cbalke Great times last week In the Eastern Sierra. Here's a shot @thattimdude took of me descending the upper chute off Greenstone ridge. With more snow in the forecast it's time to get back out there. 2mon

cbalke @thattimdude and Seb skinning their way around Saddlebag Lake to the camp spot. 2mon
  •   coon____ Sounds like the excuse of someone that was afraid to go swimming hahha 2mon
  •   cbalke @coon____ haha, well I do have newish boots 2mon
  •   home_slice what a world 2mon
  •   cbalke @home_slice it's an amazing place! 2mon
  •   oceanmang FOY?! 2mon
  •   cbalke Fountain of Youth should be ready soon @oceanmang 2mon
  •   technologyhiker Outstanding - looks like the saddlebag road and ferry are not open yet 1mon
  •   cbalke @technologyhiker the road was open a couple weeks ago when we took this. I'm not sure though with the recent snow and Tioga closures. The water level looked really low at saddlebag. I believe they want to open the resort in a couple weeks. 1mon

cbalke There's still snow out there if you search for it. If you've never been to the Eastern Sierra, I truly recommend it. It's pretty hard to beat views like this. #cratercrest #matterhornpeak #thedoodad #mtwalt #bridgeport #eastside #easternsierra 2mon
  •   deeboskim True that! Did you end up going to the Saddlebag area? Looks like it's supposed to snow pretty good today and tonight. I'm heading up tomorrow to probably hit up Dunderberg area again, since it sounds like the passes are going to be closed. 2mon
  •   timpeare Well, it is actually snowing right now. 2mon
  •   desolation_hiker No place like it 2mon
  •   chelli_pie It's snowing in Tahoe 2mon
  •   natylite17 We were just there! Hiked up Cottonwood pass and got stuck in a snow storm! 2mon
  •   cbalke @natylite17 sweet pics on FB! 2mon

cbalke Well my streak of not running into old naked guys at the hot springs is over. Luckily I left and had Travertine pretty much to my self. 2mon
  •   shrdnar You have become the old naked man... 2mon
  •   hefe_steele Nice 2mon
  •   cbalke @shrdnar never, I'll stay young and naked or old and clothed 2mon
  •   cbalke @chelli_pie good point, they don't frequent the springs though 2mon
  •   aka__jk Haha. Truth. Usually I get old naked, high dudes, that eat corn nuts, while bathing. Occasionally, the corn nuts would fall in the water, they'd be telling some crazy story & proceed to eat the floating corn nuts. 😐 2mon
  •   cbalke @aka__jk eww.. Haha. That is nasty. 2mon
  •   acey_loves2_explore Nice!!!! 2mon
  •   cbalke @acey_loves2_explore thanks! 2mon

cbalke Spent some time on the @furbergsnowboards yesterday on Mt. Lassen. It was a blast taking it through Volcanic pow, corn and mank. Thanks for the shot @hefe_steele 3mon

cbalke Mt Lassen delivered the goods! @hefe_steele dropping into his line for some unexpected old pow and tons of sweet corn. 3mon

cbalke Awesome day climbing and riding Mt. Lassen with @hefe_steele & @kellymsteele . I still can't believe how good the snow was! Volcano season starts in March now... 3mon

cbalke I've been eyeing this old roll of film that's been laying around. I finally had it developed (which no one does anymore) and realized it was from about 14 years ago. We had rented a cabin in Tahoe and were sessioning a rail on a snowskate. How time flys by... 3mon

cbalke As soon as I saw the clouds hanging over Mt Diablo and the lighting I knew I had to head here to snap a few shots. 3mon
  •   miguelgrandes Nice to see it with water 3mon
  •   domvallee Beauty shot! 3mon
  •   cbalke @miguelgrandes seriously. I was surprised there was this much. 3mon
  •   cbalke @domvallee Thankyou!! The contrast and color was really good today. Glad to see you've been scoring some pow. 3mon
  •   miguelgrandes Yeah I've been wantin to go out there but it's kind of a far drive for me when I wasn't really sure if there was water...maybe I'll head out there soon 3mon

cbalke A couple months back we had a blast racing across the desert to spend the night in the Ruby's and ride TC couloir. Here's a quick video of the ride down TC Couloir. #tc #couloir #rubymountains #splitboarding #splitboard 3mon

cbalke Took a few laps on #TamarackPeak last week and scored better conditions then I expected. @furbergsnowboards 3mon
  •   cbalke @nadiya_sheckler seriously, just like the PNW its really bare in Tahoe. Two more resorts just closed for the season. 3mon
  •   cbalke @sdmarkus thanks man! I can't believe @chrisgallardo did it by himself all these years.. 3mon
  •   cbalke @jenario yeah you do. It's a Furberg. It has a large radius side cut design so it looks way different. Excited to get some more days on it. 3mon
  •   chrisgallardo thanks @cbalke 3mon
  •   tracie_k Praise Jesus 3mon
  •   deeboskim @cbalke right now I've got either Wednesday or Thursday afternoons through Sunday mornings off. Weird schedule I know, but I work 12hr graveyard shifts. 3mon
  •   cbalke Hmm.. I'm the same but have Mon-Wed off. @deeboskim 3mon
  •   deeboskim Haha dang it! 3mon

cbalke Last nights sun setting behind Mt. Tamalpais and the Eucalyptus trees of San Pablo Bay. 5mon
  •   syeed72 Beautiful!! 5mon
  •   janarenee27 @cbalke point pinole, thanks! I've taken pics of Mt tam from a lot of angles from the north bay, so was just wondering about this angle. Thanks 5mon
  •   jewieee Gorgeous 5mon

cbalke Parking lot camping in the Rubys's last Friday night. The accommodations included cold weather, a bonfire, beer and being woken up by someone swinging doughnuts 50 yards from your tent. 5mon
  •   cbalke @ride_it_sideways you just made it weird.. Haha 5mon
  •   cbalke @shrdnar we can deal with that casualty. Better than the time our beers floated down stream during the hail storm. 5mon
  •   shrdnar Oh yeah definitely. A loss of a beer is a tragedy. That was an epic storm though! 5mon
  •   mattcllns How was the coverage out there? Any rocks poking out on the chute? 5mon
  •   cbalke @mattcllns Nope, coverage was perfect. The approach after the creek crossing could have used more snow though. 5mon
  •   jcizzler Yeah, only been off a few days @cbalke 5mon
  •   logs_and_pow Looks fun :) 5mon
  •   cbalke @logs_and_pow it was a great trip 5mon
