My Year in Picture (Great Idea Kurt!)


Expedition Leader
I was thinking about putting some narrative and pictures together last week...I did it last year and really enjoyed it! After viewing CruiserOutfitters pictures; I was motivated to get it done! So, here you go...

The year of exploration started out with me (weather freak) watching the weather. In February, we made our escape!

Zion in February! Very nice. It was a nice break from the slopes of PC.

In mid March, we ran down to the Swell. The San Rafael Swell is just a nice spot to feel the warmth of the spring sun and play in the slots.

Great thread! I hope to do the same with my kids (one in the womb and one a sparkle in my eye) when they are old enough!
