Wild Fest 2012!!!

Dood. Somethings krister does amaze me, and well, everyone else that sees it. 
Kritter tried a back rodeo out of the water skipping pool.. he was going sooo fast and it turned into a massive rodeo to the flats with a near decapitation involved. That guy down by spungebob nearly felt what it would be like to get kritter stomped. Thankfully however, that didn't happen and everyone is ok. Slightly shocked, but still ok. And yah, Wild Mountain had a slush fest this last weekend! And boy was it slushy out there! It was the perfect ending to such an odd but super fun season. Temps were in the 80's here in MN this March making winter come to a very abrupt end. To be honest, it wasn't much of a winter at all.. but at least we had places like Wild to shred all season. 

little Garrett McKenzie came out for the festivities and last day of riding. And yep, he wore a girls tanktop the whole day. 

Ski Patrol tried their hand at water skipping.. and I learned that I'd rather bail out of the cart than ever try to go through a massive puddle, cause that thing hits water and sinks. Still entertaining to see! 

Erik Ralles knew what was up.
 Water skipping should be done in a wetsuit, even if it is on backwards.. 

Krister coming in behind his older brother and taking a front side slash, soaking his mom to the bone.. what a son. 

Next came Austin who also prefers a good frontside slasher. 

...and this is the effects of that! soaked crowd! Good thing it was 80 degrees and the crowd actually enjoyed getting soaked. It's like seas world. 

Shane Hoschette, Cole Linzmeyer, and Erik Ralles! 

making a mess of things.. 

On the small parks towrope a real water skipping course marks the end of this season. 

After the day was over I stuck around to bask in the sun and take a few last glances. 
Tow rope was so beat up after. Yah, we held on that rope as it drug us up that.. crazy fun times. 

A canyon dug out right where you'd want to be on your way up. 
 Treacherous spot on days like this, but pretty cool. 

See ya next year snow. I'm off to warmer temps.. ?? and beaches!!! :) 
I've wrapped this winter up and am on my way to Florida tomorrow. 
Going to see my girl, give her a big hug!, and get on with the next adventures life brings me. 

Stay tuned!! and thanks for such a great winter Minnesota!!
