    Hey Eth,
    How cool is that?! What a stunning trip. Deep powder, deep Spirit, wonderful account. Hey, your first fight, eh? Nicely handled.
    I love the first photo in your “more photos” section, the trail at the start, with the stream winding up and to the left. Really fine. And the pictures of you and Lacey are great. Love your beard.
    I look forward to more (postings, that is, not beards).
    Much love,
    Bruce

    If only it was the first ‘disagreement!’ We’d a little practice already, but never in conditions like those.

    The beard is now RIP, but I liked it better than I thought I would, so maybe you’ll see it again…

    Hey Ethan – I’ve been reading up on your recent domestic adventures, and look forward to following you vicariously as you guys wander about the world. Does the Natural History Museum ID have to be a guess? I was just there today and made a point of keeping an eye out for it. Will you be sending your readers on other scavenger hunts? I’m game.
