Happy New Year!

After spending Christmas with Becca’s family, we headed up to Jackson, WY to visit our friend Aaron and ring in the New Year. It was a great way to end the year and 2014 should be even better!

Imagine crossing this, de-icing your gear, and hitting another slush pocket five minutes later. We did this 10x,  it was a long day.IMG_0831
