good food, good friends and another fun filled time in th backcountry…
To be honest, this was th best trip I’ve been on thus far…next September’s trip will be hard pressed ta beat this one…( but I’m sure Scatman will come up with somethin that’ll top it! How bout a light snow while summitin Mt. Holmes? Til next time….

Happy Trails to y’all!
