Excellent post Tom! THAT's what I call an epic 16 day adventure. And with my ski skills, one that I will never do. Doug Robinson still is a legend and still somewhat active (and therefore another source of inspiration for me to keep doing things), RIP Galen Rowell.

Old Ranger, my intent is to hit the Superstitions in spring to see the bloom some year...maybe this coming spring. I have heard it is really something to see.
