Since y'all talking cold...

A snowshoe/poncho shelter I lived in for a few days and an upgraded shelter me and a partner built. Good times at 11k feet or so in the Sierra Nevada.

Thank you all who served! Below are pics of my dad, grandfathers and uncles who grew up in the same town and served in WWII and Vietnam. The town honored the men last year and have decided to keep the banners up permanently. Thank you Elkland residents and leaders.
