  1. Great video, Mike. I really enjoyed this group.. awesome adventure with all those snow pack and we still got out safe. Thanks to Luis, Martin, Alan, Eric and to you for a great company, I’d love to go out with all of you again. Cheers!

  2. So beautiful up there… Great trip, great group. Looked like good times. I'm planning on making to Allen's meet up towards the end of July. I haven't seen you all for a while. Saturday will be my 13th straight day of work… Tired with no time. Thanks for sharing, take care Mike.
