Octavian (@octaviangeagla) hops out of our home for the next few weeks to get in some early morning climbing in Lander's Sinks Canyon State Park.
Octavian hiking to climb, with Ahab the van behind him. Ahab's no VW, but he sure is a good friend (and home!). Octavian's actually wearing the Go Slo Wyoming jacket under his puffy in this photo, not that you'd know it.

Another stop on the way to Canada: A night time boot-pack up Mt. Glory in Teton Pass outside Jackson, WY.

Enjoying some well-earned turns down Balu's Shoulder in Roger's Pass, BC.
Ahab the van stayed in this spot for four nights. Every morning we geared up and skied away, knowing we'd have a toasty warm van to come home to.

You make your own fun when the snow doesn't feel like cooperating.

Hanging out shooting ice climbers in Vail, Colorado. Climbing up and down ropes keeps me warm as I spend the day out of the sun in the chill January air.
