I went on a trip into the mountains of south Colorado with six other Los Alamos Mountaineers. We hiked on snowshoes or skis to the yurt on Friday, hiked around on Saturday, and came back home on Sunday. It was a great privilege to go on a trip with this group of people, which combined with a beautiful scenery, good weather, and lots of exercise, creating an amazing experience.

Thank you Adam, Dave, David, Jeff, Melanee, and Terri!

Here is what a yurt looks like

Inside the yurt: 2 bunk beds, 2 more mattresses, wood-burning stove with
a big pot for melting snow, a propane stove, and a table with benches.

Time to make drinking water. The snowmelt tasted very good. (photo by Melanee)
