Mt. Sopris before the storm.

The Storm

I have shown you Mt. Sopris many times but this time you get to see it before the storm.  Within minutes after this photo black storm clouds cover the mountain down to tree line and the temperature dropped drastically.  My gloves and choice of clothes no longer were enough to keep me warm.  I really need to get back to […]

Holy Cross Wilderness

On Monday I went to Eagle Colorado and did some mountain biking.  The terrain was a lot like that of the Roaring Fork Valley but we still had a blast.  On the first climb up the Abrams Trail we had some great views of the west side of the Holy Cross Wilderness.  I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of […]
