snow day

The topic for the accretionary wedge for this month is fun field trip/camp moments.

There is something about a fresh coat of snow... a lot of snow, that brings out the kid in me. I don't know if I can distinguish between "most fun moments" in the field.

 Maybe it was the time that I hiked out to my field site in the snow all alone (and was scared on the way by an extremely large, non-domesticated... canine) and came across a huge, pristine open field with at least 3 feet of snow and made a chain of snow angels all the way across it.

Or it was when we took the sleds intended for hauling gear, snuck into a local park after dark, and spent hours illegally sledding on a massive hill. 

Yeah, working in the snow gets miserable fast. But when it's fresh and deep, it can be awesome.

It's a pretty sad state of affairs when sledding is illegal anywhere.
