We’ve only just met, but I can already tell we’re going to have a complicated relationship - one of those deals where I obsess about our next time together even though every moment with you is pain and abuse.
See you in a week.
Aaaaaaaaaaaand that’s enough keyboard diarrhea
Couple of notes:
I didn’t even get to the top of Mt Falcon proper - made it to the first local maxima and called it quits. (And maxima is totally a word so suck it Tumblr spell check)
Does a 13 min/mile pace on the climb count as running?
The photo is looking down on Red Rocks amphitheater.
Taken while cowering in my hotel room at the unbridled force of nature. This storm had it all: golf-ball sized hail, lightning strikes every two to three minutes for hours on end, tornado warnings… yikes!
The first shot is the only photo that came out okay; the rest are all still frames from some video I shot.
I got in a quick ride this afternoon now that my bike is unpacked and reassembled! I needed a warm-up ride to make sure I put everything back together properly. No pieces fell off, which is excellent. I haven’t found all of my tools yet, so some of the components are only finger tight.
Highlights from Waterton Canyon:
Some seriously disaffected bighorns giving me the hairy eye
Lots of gently climbing dirt road with a gut-busting singletrack climb at the end
I’m so excited to be back in Colorado and doing things like this again.
