Sanctuaries in the Snow

The Badass Women Shrine (Snowmass)

The Badass Women Shrine is on Snowmass, on the Naked Lady run.  Many thanks to Vega Brhely for telling me about this shrine and its location.  Also, thanks to Vega and Erik Obermeyer for the photo contributions.

A sign posted on a tree at this shrine states:  "The Badass Women Shrine -- Erected in honor of all the ladies who inspire us.  Some are living and currently leading the way, while others we remember in memoriam.  We follow in their footsteps."

Photos of it are below (click on images to enlarge), and see the section below the photos for a list of the 39 women who are honored in this shrine.
