Mmmm, nice comfortable night in my new Hennessy hammock!

(One can note the dearth of snow on the ground. Temperatures probably never dipped much below freezing, if at all. What a gyp!)

Finally found some snow on the way up to the Paradise visitor center.

Clif hid his Triumph Tiger under his jacket, trying to "blend in" with the rest of the, well, non-Tiger crowd. I, on the other hand, don't seem to have much to hide.
