Field Notes
“No matter how desperate you are for dry boots, never place wet leather close to a raging campfire. Shoes don’t have to get burned to cause problems. On a 1997 trip in Wyoming’s Wind Rivers, I thought my boots were far enough away, but the heat caused them to shrink by at least half a size. For the next four days, I battled blisters the size of golf balls on both heels.”  —Kristin Hostetter
