Shoes

Flyboxer recently sent a disk full of amazing photos from his hike, starting in Yellowstone and ending somewhere in Northern New Mexico.  These three photos give you a taste of the brutality of hiking in final days in Colorado.  The tennis shoes on the left were replaced by the shoe on the right, but only after he abandoned the snowy hills for the long road into New Mexico.  Late this week another snow storm is expected to hit New Mexico, so he's not out of the woods yet.

  1. Go Flyboxer Go! Good luck and I hope you dodge the snow. Much props to you for being out there solo in those elements.

  3. I put those crocs on because my shoes were frozen solid and I couldn't get them on. It didn't work well as the crocs kept flipping snow into the ziplocs. Eventually I dipped my shoes in a creek to quick thaw. That wasn't the best idea either obviously, as the shoes were still ice cold, but I did manage to get my feet in them.
