Backcountry Winter

This was taken about 4 years ago while on a back country ski trip in Yosemite.  It was cold and the snow was blowing.

That's really a very silly place to be during winter; you could freeze and then have your carcass eaten in spring!

Try the Virgin Islands. You might get lucky. I'm trying to find a way there - the Islands - for my own next winter.

At times I ask myself the same thing.  My wife certainly wasn't going to stop while I set up my tripod.  Still winter in the Sierra is tame compared to the Rockies.  If it weren't for my love of skiing, I wouldn't do this.  Oh and the skiing was terrible.  I've been to the Virgin Islands and it was quite pleasant, maybe too pleasant.  I sure could get lazy quick living in a tropical paradise.  I really don't photography much in Yosemite unless the weather becomes unstable.
