S2ki Wake the Dragon 2016 Part 3: The Finale


Here we are with the last part in part 3. I had a problem with one of my memory cards and lost almost 600 pictures from the weekend. After I recovered them it left everything in a crazy order so today’s part is not in chronological order and is kind of all over the place.

Any who, it shouldn’t take away from the post too much. As for my final thoughts on the trip, I will be going again next year. If something’s good enough to want to do it again, I don’t think there’s much more explaining needed. But as with most trips of this type, it’s the people you go with. The driving and scenery and everything were great, but just going away with a bunch of friends and hanging out always makes that much more fun. See ya next year!

If you haven’t figured it out yet, most of this coverage is of Stan, Mike and Fernando.

This was taken from the top lookout point of Clingman’s Dome, 6,643 feet up. On a clear day you can see seven different states. The weather did not want to cooperate with us.
