Refreshing photos! Thanks!

"Post hole stout" and up can be indicated when you start to cry after thrashing a while. Extra points for hollow spots under hidden fallen tree trunks. 50 to 60 lb. pack plus your own on board baggage (fat) will help contribute to this condition.

Everyone should post hole at least once... Then you will appreciate how good you've got it the rest of the time!

It looked to me a month ago when I flew over both the Sierras and the Rockies, that there was actually a lot more snow in the Sierras this year.
