You skipped G, R and Y and I think that's D behind N. It's great to see a new angle on some old friends.

An unusual warm spell came through this week and the Wildboy and I headed out to what I expect may be our last mountain this year. We'll likely have to dig out the snowshoes after this. Noting the...
