One requires a tolerance for cold and a degree of suffering most people would prefer to pass up; the other involves cozy accommodations, light packs and comfy mattresses. Both usually include spectacular winter scenery and close friends.</p><p> Tue, 14 Jan 2014 16:42:23 +0000 Will Roush 12882 at http://aspenpublicradio.org Of Fire Tents and Hut Trips
