The New(Old) North Face Westwind Tent

In 1989 I got a new North Face tent to replace my worn out out blue and brown Tuolumne. It was called the Westwind, a 3 poled hoop tent in bright yellow and gray, and was used extensively in Pisgah, at the Stillwinds Tipi, in the Sierra Nevadas during my '89 California trip, along Lake Michigan in February at zero degrees, and hundreds of nights at the Beck Camps and behind the new church where I worked. The top fotog shows the tent set up in the backyard of some friends I was visiting, and the bottom was taken in a national forest in South Carolina with a small group of backpackers from Boone.
