Made it to the Bright Angel trailhead! Woot!

I won some free lift tickets and lodging at Red River so we decided to go at the end of the season. Here are some pictures:

Me and Jenny on the chair lift. Jenny did awesome on skis!





There were a ton of deer around our cabin mooching our food. Here's Jenny feeding them some pineapple.
