Very cool video's JD. Would be interesting to make a skating video by
moonlight, and maybe also with some colored lighting/flares/sparklers.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member: http://reconn.org

thanks Mav. Funny you should mention the moon light. Here's a montage of just that with the eclipse.

The season is back upon us, but I'm afraid this year it will be short lived- here's a couple of vids from last year. They all start looking alike....
