Both of these are from Grays Peak, two days before Thanksgiving in 2011. My first real experience with winter winds.

This was taken by a friend at about 2AM during a moonlight hike on Missouri Mountain in July 2012. I am on the right and was the only one who was ready for the picture. :-D
To get the picture, we had the camera auto countdown and take a normal picture with a flash. We then dove out of the camera's view while the shutter stayed open another 2 minutes to expose the surrounding mountains (Emerald, Iowa, North Apostle and Ice Mountain) by moonlight. The bright green light that appears to give me an ET like heart is my SPOT GPS Messenger sitting on a rock behind me in transmit mode.
