Grizzly Bear – Two Weeks

I’m a little behind on this, so don’t mind I run through this at pace. I have few pictures to share on this one, so I’ll try to keep it short.

I’m writing this from Salt Lake City, Utah. It’s snowing outside. Really snowing. I have no jacket – dammit I just came from the jungle, I’m not ready for this madness! Anyway, I’ll return to the weather in a moment, before I update my current whereabouts.
