HALT Winter Camp 2019

We had our best winter training camp ever this year!  Tons of snow and temperatures down to single digits made it a great time to be in the snow.
We were all able to dig snow caves although I made mine too short and kept hitting the roof as I slept in it.

Mason Valley Backpack

Second half of the Camelback award was at Mason Valley/Chariot Canyon section of the CRHT and some of the PCT out to Rodriguez Spur fire tank.
We had crazy cold, windy weather at the Pedro Fages Monument trailhead but it was nice once we got down into the canyon.
