Great Trip Report and photos. I wish I had time to go. Last time I was in DV was 2002, way too long ago. :crybaby: :crybaby: :crybaby:

'across the valley', 'valley', 'Hunter Mountain', 'on the way to Townes Pass', and 'Old Studebaker' are my favorites. :) GREAT shots...

Thank you very much! :righton:

Nice pics sooz and tom - looks like it was a great group trip (although a bit cold) and Argus peak looked like a good one. I think I'll head out and try that one as soon as get out from under the pile of work I've gotten buried under.

SN- GREAT shots- you got great coverage of the hike and the whole day! Fun stuff. Snow pics are cool, I was afraid to take my camera out in it. Next time I'll use Joe's plastic bag method!
Anyway, great pics, Tom and Cori! Nice "O- bit (ch)" shots! hahahahahahahahaaaaa.

great pictures Snow - your snow shots were fantastic - that weather sure did come in quick - after the drinking trough incident I am nervous about getting my camera wet.
