Evan’s birthday snowboard run with GoPro Helmet Hero camera

My son Evan spent his 30th birthday (March 20th — Spring equinox) — snowboarding in powder snow with his friend Sean in the hills above Lake Tahoe. Recorded with a GoPro Helmet Hero HD wide angle lens video camera.

(Sending this from Verve Roasters super coffee shop with good wi-fi, in Santa Cruz on a rainy morning. We’re down here to visit grandson baby Maceo.)

“Went up to a water tower above Agate Bay with my soon to be brother in law. We snowshoed a ways up the hill then rode down towards the cabin through the backcountry. . . .”

  1. What a kick! Just when I was starting to get decent on skis I wrecked my back. Actually, it turned out to be a congenital deformity I didn't know I had, but that happened a month after I turned thirty, so no more skiing, and certainly not snowboarding. But I've always thought that snowboarding looked like a gas, and now I know it really is. I wish Evan many years of happy snowboarding.

    What was the music, by the way? I liked it.
