Snow Caves & Snow Ice Cream for Environment Americas

We returned from our trip, Snow Caves & Snow Ice Cream for Environment Americas, on Saturday, February 18 2017.

The biggest single-day BVICO outing so far -- 51 people in all. And, amazingly, we made it back on time despite the crowds at the Bear Lake trailhead in Rocky Mountain National Park. Thanks to Eric for snagging the ingredients for the ever-popular snow ice cream. Thanks to Kuba, Kate, and Eric for helping to manage the belly sledding mayhem. And thanks to Hana, Leslie, and Lukas for helping with other logistics. Thank, too, to the folks at Environment for the Americas for rounding up such a great crowd, handling transportation and food, and making sure that things moved along smoothly.
