Feb 4, 2015 - When my friend Megan asked if I wanted to go hike Mt. Baldy in Eagle River, Alaska where I grew up, I jumped at the offer - after all, I hadn't hiked it in at least a year and it's a quick sprint up to the summit which can be done in a relatively short amount of time. If, that is, you're in the right shape to do it. I was not. Meg was thankfully gracious about me sucking gas, and even posed for a quick outdoor lifestyle shoot on the summit. I tried to blame it on the fact that I was hiking in regular old running shoes and Megan has those Kahtook brand hiking crampons (which I was definitely convinced I needed by the end of the day), but I wasn't fooling anyone. Also, frozen hands left me determined to figure out a good cold weather shooting glove solution. Any ideas?
