Perhaps I'll have more time (errr, interest) once the temperatures drop to "use my words", for I do love words. But for now, my noggin' is all about the visual. And the smells. And the feels of wind and dirt and alpine air and pine needles, and even of the branches as I slam into them in my clumsy descents of singletrack. But this visual....all I can convey in this post, at least today. As such, all I have to offer are some pics today.
Or, is it a laugh, you seek?
Wanna hear a mountain joke?
Sure, but you won't get over it.
Speaking of mountains, some wholesome ones were romped around this summer. So on w/a few pics to hopefully spread the stoke...
|Amazeballs. Alpine lake @ 12,400'. Ummm....cold!|

Looking south into the Weminuche, the high CT winding thru and some old ruins. And Lil Donkey125 is parked down below at the pass (road, right).
Oh, and some views.
|All days aren't bluebird skies and rainbows. Montrose mud.....sucks. |
Bikey no likey.
|Cool cool uncle showing me a "trail"....yah right.|
|Fun lil independence wknd shuttle w/the baggie shorts crew...fun!|
|Watched these lil guys from the day they hatched til they flew off. |
| Speaking of new ones, loved this sunny high-elevation walk with my favorite new mama, her baby chica and of course Turner-dawg!|
|Yes, in July.|
|Snuck south to the roots for warmer temps and some family time! Me and the mama on the Gulf.|
|And for some bike rides w/the mama and aunties.|
Then, back up toward the sky about 13,000 more feet.....
|This guy knows some stuff!|
One of my favorite spots. Zoom in, scroll around, pics never do these places justice.
Can see a lot from here...lots of CT to include those "flawless" switchbacks; Weminuche,
Lots of 13ers and 14ers, basically 360d of ooolala. Meh :)
Schilling, et al, we shall ride (errr HAB) this, 2016.
