My Locale Boulder, CO
About Me I started backpacking as a teenager in southern appalachia. My summers in college were spent in mountain heaven, glacier national park. Since then, I've lived and played in the high sierras, the cascades, and now the colorado front range. Walking in the mountains with a light pack never seems to lose its charm. I recently picked up a bad habit called climbing.

Re: re: Twin Sisters
@Dave--I read your posts about the mega light, so I'm glad to get your perspective "With less snow, and cold windy weather snow skirts would be handy." This describes most of our ...
