From Adam currently at Philmont working Autumn Adventure:
holy cow, a wild day…SAR to Copper Park in snowshoes and sleds, 20″+ of snow, cold and awesome
Crew was taken by a surprise blizzard last night, all of them were freezing cold and soaked through. The first attempt to get them by suburban failed when it got stuck in the snow. So we hauled up dry jackets and gloves and hats, 4 sleds, and enough snowshoes for everyone and hiked them from Copper to Miranda, hauling all of their packs in the sleds.
Copper Park to Miranda in snow shoes and sleds? Awesome.

Its stuff like this that makes me miss those summers in Colfax County.
