"Not this again!"

“Not this again!”

"This is so lame!"

“This is rediculous!”

"I can't get out!"

"Come on!"

These Alaskan photos are from April 2011, the Hawaiian ones are from March 2013. In April 2011, an old college roommate of mine came to visit me in Alaska. These photos were taken on a hike that we were on that was only suppose to take two hours; however, April in western Alaska is a tricky time of year and the snow did not cooperate with us, it kept caving in as we walked on it – this nearly doubled the amount of time it took to complete the hike, not to mention it made for some very annoying tumbles into the snow.

In Hawaii, a friend was visiting me and we decided to go to a secluded beach for the day. Unfortunately, in order to get to the beach we had to cross a dry/damp river bed. Everyone else had more luck getting across than I did. If you look closely, the man in the photo with me is swiftly able to make his way across. I guess I was just unlucky, but I thought my comical misfortunes made for some good comparison photos.

The results.

And here are a few other pictures:

    Snow shoes would have helped in Alaska. Not sure what you could have used in Hawaii. Just goes to show – no matter where you are you can end up knee deep in it – lol. It being somewhat variable.
