Day trip to Crater of the Moon Idaho with Wayne Phillips & Pascal Joubert.
Took only 10 minutes to climb the 3000 feet hight of Tomcat summit with a moderate NNE wind and blue sky.
Climbed it twice, exploring the summit ridge toward the North and flew down !
What a great day !
Thanks Wayne for taking time to shoot some nice pics :jump:

Life it too short to miss a session like that because of computer problems at work! Great Pictures and on the very top no less! Ririe sure has been making up for it nicely however. The wind and freshies out past the house have got me back into the jibbing mood!

Once at the summit we were able to kite the summit ridge for about two miles. Well past the lookers right ridge in the last photo. One of my favorite days to date. Going from peak to peak so quickly was very excting! Craters of the moon is a spot that is always worth the drive!

Incredible photos. Looks like an awesome day.

Are those the Tetons in the distance on photo fb5.jpg? I haven't been to Craters of the Moon in about 20 years--way before kiting, and only in the summer. Brings back some great memories, though.

Awesome.
Have you guys ever kited that big bad-ass looking butte in the background? If it's the one i'm thinking of we've always wanted to try and get up there. Theres a weather station on top that blows when nowhere else is blowing.

Yes it was a fun day despites the lack of snow !
The picture "fb5" is looking South and i believe what we can see in the distance is Big Southern Butte, the Tetons are East.
