A weekend in Harry Gates Hut

After having such a great time last year in Margy's Hut, Lisa and I (and 13 others) decided to trek up to Harry Gates Hut - another hut in the 10th Mountain Division Hut Association series of huts. 13 of us snowshoed in, and two skied the 6.4 mile, 2000 vertical foot climb. There was plenty of food and alcohol to go around once we were there, and we all had a great time. Of course, when you're surrounded with such astonishing natural beauty, it's hard not to have fun.
