Appreciate the update,Scott.
Rivers are very cool,too!
All of Colorado's 14ers (including the ones that don't quite make the criterion of "fourteener") are special,even the easier walkups. Anyone who climbs even one should be commended.The feeling one gets on the summit on a beautiful clear day can't be adequately described to anyone who has never experienced it. I've climbed something like thirty-five of the 14ers,and hope I someday manage to climb the rest. There are also many,many magnificent peaks of lower altitude,a lot of which are much tougher than virtually all of the 14ers. My hat is always off to anyone who gets off the couch and heads for the top.
What a good idea;simultaneous roadwork on both ends of town to maximize the inconvenience and frustration of all road users. I don't suppose they could finish the work on one end of town before starting in on the other? It certainly seems like better planning could have happened.
This seems to be one of those rare occasions when most of the regulars agree on something. What a poor move on the part of the DOW,moving a mother elk and leaving her calf unattended and "vulnerable."You bet it's vulnerable! For anyone who complained about the trail closures or ignored them and contributed to this travesty occurring, shame on you.The distinct possibility that this calf will not make it is on your head.
I don't think Pippin got Elevenses either.
I remember that bitter cold (definitely in the mid to late 80's,perhaps '86?) and that was when the record for coldest recorded temperature in Colorado history occurred; -61 degrees in Maybell. Don't remember if that record has since been broken. I would be happy to never see a temperature that cold ever again.
Attaboy,Roddy! What an adventure you and your crew are having! I'm always glad to read your latest reports. All this and the World Cup too...
Still a pretty cool photo,don't you think?
Me too Rhys! (For all the reasons you do,and then some.)
