Mt. Sopris, 12,965'

Shenanigans of Late

It’s been a while since I posted anything so here is a photo journal of the last few months.  I’ve been fishing in Maine, cycling in Breckenridge, CO and on the Monarch Crest, which is part of the Continental Divide Trail (CDT), and climbed my first Colorado 14er. This year was my 15th year in a row going to The […]

Thomas Lakes Hike

Today I got off to a late start.  Getting up at 10:30 didn’t help and was probably the reason but who knows.  I was torn between going for a ride over Cottonwood Pass or for a hike.  Since I hadn’t been hiking in some time I decided to go to Thomas Lakes, which are about half way up Mt. Sopris. […]

Bikepacking at Last

Bikepacking at Last

I have been dreaming and talking about going bikepacking for a long time now.  I planned to go this past Sunday now that I had all my bags and no excuses left.  Come Sunday the thunder storms rolled in one after the other.  As I sat there during one of the storms I looked at my Twitter account and I […]

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 […]

Mt. Sopris with rainbow and sprinkler.

Mt. Sopris

Yesterday I went up and I mean up a country road outside of Carbondale on my road bike and this is what I was rewarded with.  Mt. Sopris, Rainbows, and the watering of the “lawn”.  There was no rain so this rainbow was a direct result of the sprinkler.   Scatman Get out there! Wondering how you can support the […]

The Storm

I took this shot while playing disc golf.  I probably watched 4-5 storms pass over Mt. Sopris in a two hour period.  The thunder this one produced was amazing and reminded me of the storms in New England as a kid.  I made it to the 17th hole before I got sprinkled on.  All in all a good day.   […]
