Heading West

Leaving early tomorrow morning on our trip to the Grand Tetons. Trail reports show that we will be hiking in snow! Why am I so nervous? Maybe because Jeff is sending me YouTube videos of how to self-arrest with an ice axe...

You'll have a great time!!
I practiced self-arrest with an ice axe when I lived in New Zealand. I got the rhythm down pat when I knew I had to self-arrest. But if I was taken by surprise, I don't think I would have been able to do the moves.
Have fun and tell us all about it.
