This photo was taken while climbing Hoverla mountain in Ukraine. Not used to this type of weather and without the proper protection (snow came early), my fingers almost froze and I came close to hypothermia. With help from the guide, I recovered and climbed it all the way to the top, making of this a memorable day.
