Snow....

... not sure if you guys saw it or not, but I once told a tale about getting stuck on a mountain during a white-out... yeah, yeah... I know you guys probably didn't believe me when I wrote it... and hey, that's cool... us bloggers are tough skinned... anyway, now that I have a scanner... here are some photographs from the trip...

... I'm in the orange bag fast asleep...

... sometimes I really miss Alaska...

I can honestly tell you, I don't think there is anything I would miss about that. I had this whole post in my head about today, and I'll just have to link to this now... this sure does put it in perspective.

I feel miserable just looking at all that white. Holy crap.

That just looks like fun.

Kinda funny when the tourists in the summertime ask us if it is really true that we "get paid to live here." (our yearly permanent fund dividends from oil money).

We say, Yeah, come back in January and you'll understand why they have to pay us to live here!

That looks just like somethin' I'd steer clear of.

A pure-T RedNeck nightmare...

Man, that's right up there with my most recent root canal.

Brrrrrrr. Reason number 1,648 why I believe in camping in the summertime!
