    Sunday, Sept. 23

    Found a nice fleece hanging in a tree branch on the way up. It was still there 45min later on our way down, so we brought it home.

    I picked up a new pair of the Vasque Snowburban Ultradry. Very warm. Almost a mountaineering boot. They're stiffer and higher than your average hiking boot. They've got a few bells and whistles too!
