Surviving the Subnivean

If you are hiking the trails in Boulder Colorado you may run into a volunteer Trail Guide. These folks are friendly, helpful and vigilant. I took this photo during their training session entitled “Surviving Freezing Toes While Learning About the Subnivean* Environment”.

Hard core indeed!

*Subnivean (or subniveal) refers to a zone that is in or under the snow layer.
