GMC - Photo Album

 

Editor's note: As we mentioned last week, this is the time of the year when our annual General Mountaineering Camp gets underway. It's also the time of the year when awesome photos start dropping on us from camp participants and staff back from their week all high on the blue skies, glaciers and camp camaraderie and looking to share what's in their cameras. Who are we to say no? This batch courtesy of Alison Dakin.
