OpenBSD Hackathon c2k4 - Calgary, Canada

These were taken at the annual OpenBSD hackathon in Calgary, Canada between 19th June 2004 and 26th July 2004. Most of the photos here are of the amazing hike that we went on around Lake Louise (near Banff). There are more photos to come, once I get my camera back off my wife :)

These photos are in chronological order. Where names are listed, they read from left to right.

Other OpenBSD developers took photos too: aaron@, henning@ (many). beck@ (disorganised), dkrause@, pval@.

It obviously expected to be fed

Back down the scree slope



Australia doesn't have real mountains, so these were intimidaing in their size
