Today was supposed to be snowing, according to the forecasts. But they were wrong (again) and the day started with the sun shining through my curtains and I quickly had to make a choice.

Was I feeling gnarly enough?

The answer was a tentative yes, so it was off to The Legendary Mt Granview.

And Mt Granview delivered (as it almost always does).

Actually we had a really great time up there. Lots of untouched snow to play in on the sides, and the views were gran(d). Some days you try and squeeze some colour out of a dull photo. Today was one of those days when with some you actually want to tone them down. Brilliant blue skies.

Let no man or woman say that the views from Mr Granview are not gran(d).

MtGrantastic!

It is, that and a few others.

Looking back over towards Makinata and Hakkaisan is 'bigger' scenery.

Problem is, that muika's amazing pics often make a place look better than it is! :lol:

But not in the case of Mt Granview of course.
whoever smelt it, dealt it

Fantastic. But how much of a zoom are you using on those Makihata direction shots, muika?
