Hi Gossamer Gear,

I'm attaching a photo for your September gear drawing. It's of me backpacking with the Sitlight Pad. The location is Columbine Lake. This was part of a 5-day hike in July 2010 through the spectacular Mineral King area of Sequoia National Park. Note the spectacular blue color of the lake, the enormous cairn (typical of the area), and the happy swimmers in the background. The Sit Pad is essential for trips on the granite, as it keeps your bum warm when the granite cools off at night.

Hope you like the photo. Thanks!
