Early Autumn Snow

This snowfall was a few weeks ago. I took my FJ to the top of Snowbowl to see how it handled in the slick and took a few photos on my way up the mountain.

Plus a bonus photo of Kristen at Breakfast, just cuz I can.

Havasupai photos 2013

In no particular order, here is my take from havasupai this year. I'm not super pleased with it, but I think I did better than last year, which is good. Continual improvement.

Something I had forgotten: the entire hike smells like horse poop.

Good to have an adventure buddy :-)
