The iconic and beloved hut at the top of Glory was dismantled this past fall. But not to be deterred, the glory riding crowd has already resurrected a new version for this winter.
If you need a ride and see this rig driving towards Teton Village, put a thumb out and chances are you'll be treated to a first-class shuttle to the Ranch Lot. Such a sweet ride!
After a pre-dawn Glory lap on Friday, I drove to the Stilson lot to park and wait for the START BUS. Sure enough, here comes this guy in his newly converted transit van from New Hampshire offering a ride to anyone who wanted one. Second best part of my day!
Homemade campers have flatscreen tvs now.
Nuclear free snow, please.
A great line.
Bootin up Glory
Not quite sure what's happening with our weather pattern, but I should not be out grilling in the dark wearing flip flops, no coat, and walking on grass on December 7th.
The secret line down Glory that hardly anyone knows about. Hasn't snowed in a week and there was one track through this tree alley.

It was a busy Friday before we left. I was trying to wrap up as much as possible before leaving for a week.
And after a 6 1/2 hr drive south to SLC through thick snow and slop...
Honorary mimosas at the airport! to celebrate the annual sale at The Wheel! that we were unfortunately not able to take part in.
The city just keeps on growin...
But there are still micro ecosystems that I find absolutely captivating. You have to look hard and know where to go, but they are there! (I can provide free directions for those who are curious.)
And then we stopped by the Cardiff tide pools at low tide...
And caught a sunset from our fave mex restaurant.
Tuesday, it was the best beach run on the San Diego coastline...
Another perfect sunset...
And an incredibly delicious dinner at Land & Water in Carlsbad Village. If you are looking for top-tier, one-of-a-kind, unique, local food creations that will shock your taste buds by giving them something they've never tasted before and that are simply the most flavorful food you've ever eaten, then Come to Land & Water. Simply. Outstanding. (Made even better with a bottle of Sake Moto and a sake cup from The Wheel!)
I don't even remember exactly what this was, but it had a candied pear with brie cheese in the middle. Just. Wow.
And one final sunset.
Yes, there was a wonderful Thanksgiving day spent with family in there as well but I was too busy enjoying myself and was not focused on photo journaling.
