Snow Kites

While skinning up the glacier on Mt Hood--Palmer above Timberline--I noticed some kites rising and falling over the ridge; the wind was very strong. When I got to the top I traversed over to check them out and take a couple pics. I was very impressed with their uphilling abilities, much easier than my grind with astroturf stuck to the bottom of my skis!
