Full conditions in the Gunks

Well all I can say is yesterday was pretty interesting and fun.  Chuck Boyd and a friend went to the Trapps to climb High Exposure 5.6+.  I decided to tag along and take some pictures.  The weather report was for precipitation around 5pm or so.  I think we made it to 12:00pm before we were in a full on mid-October snow storm.  The snow started to stick to fallen leaves and spider webs.  I’m sure the spiders were caught by surprise as well.  This short lived taste of winter won’t last long.  Hopefully we can get back to some real fall weather.
