Some fine photos Backpacker :D

The SGS ridge still leaves me with mixed feeling, given the mare I had on it :lol: It llooks a great ridge, but I didn't see as much as you all did that's for sure. I will be back one day to correct all the mistakes

General consensus was that we all loved it, we got everything but snow during the day.

Even falling in the river at the end couldn't dampen my spirits :lol:
