Hi Gossamer Gear!

I just wanted to send in a picture where I'm using the Mariposa Plus in the northern Swedish mountains in 'Sarek' above the arctic circle, summer this year. We had perfect weather most of the time, as you can see, and we're keen ultralight hikers, even if we're way above treeline while hiking most of the trek. I tried hiking in mesh shoes, which worked surprisingly well with a pair of gore-tex socks instead of the heavy boots. We even tried my home-made tarp a couple of nights, Ray-Way style, but the mosquitos tried to get to us a few times.

Cheers from northern Sweden!
