GoPro Mountaineering

I love having my GoPro handy on trips, but I have run into a few issues with the battery going dead very fast in cold weather.

Have you experience this issue, if so what is the best method to help?

Explosions in the sky observed from the Sierra, CA.

Explosions in the Californian sky. What was that, Super Nova?

I know this is not the best place to post this but SP members posses various expertises and perhaps I might get some help or be pointed out in to the right direction like before with the ice worms. I would like to know some interpretation just for curiosity.

In the evening of September 9, 2015, I stopped at the view point just below East ...

Need life advice! Great life but I'm wilderness starved

Please welcome my first post on SummitPost. I’ve been a reader of trip reports for a long time. I really need some advice from similar-minded outdoor enthusiasts:
