Wilderness Walk for 9-19-2010

Another quick walk, as plans have once again changed this morning, and I am off to assist with home repairs rather than going to camp. One of these days, I'll be able to make it, I promise.

Make the jump for Youngblood on goalie masks, Russo on a whole host of things, Brothers on Wellman and Havlat, and a pretty cool photo slide show from the StarTrib.

Random Wild Photo of the Day:


This way, you can see to eat your toast and check what time it is.
