Winter hiking in the Wallowas, 1985

Another hiking trip with Mr. Dole, this time in the Spring. I believe we were camping at Horsehoe Lake and this photo was taken near there. If my map reading skills are any good, that is most likely Pete's Point in the background. I was not a very experienced cross country skier, especially when it game to hills. My skis were borrowed from a friend of Mr. Dole's. My boots kept slipping and coming out of the bindings. I believe at some point Mr. Dole actually tried to re-affix the bindings to the skis using his swiss army knife as a drill and screwdriver. On the last day he offered to swap skis with me and he experienced the same problems. I never knew a teacher could use so many cursewords!
