Good on ya. Good, I am not far behind you after all. How many skeets in the park? Heading up to meet Scat tomorrow to walk the Mary Mountain trail.
They weren't too bad for me. Everyone else in the fam got a couple bites, but they weren't swarming.

You did great @Scott Chandler - I can't find it. Where is the tent?
There is a triplet of snow fields about Midway down the left half of the photo. Below the rightmost of the three is a little white dots. That's the tent! I was amazed at how much it seemed to blend in as just a snowpatch or shiny rock.
