Gossamer Gear is sponsoring this week’s SectionHiker raffle for a brand new Mariposa Plus ultralight backpack, valued at $235 USD (see my review about the 2012 Mariposa Plus.) The word Mariposa means “butterfly” in Spanish, a fitting name for this amazingly lightweight 27 ounce, 70 liter backpack.

Butterflies in my stomach
Cathedrals of ice
The morning cobwebs
Snare unwary butterflies
But many escape
