Chris Sandstone FJ was our LeaderWizard. Our trip included driving into Telluride to view the spectacular waterfall as well as the Ophir Pass. (Thurs. July 17) Here are a few pictures of our adventure.
At the summit of Imogene pass it was 38 but with the sun it feels like 80 until cloud cover hits. If I never make it back here(god forbid) I can say I've been to one of the most beutiful places on earth.
AIR2AIR destroys my favorite recovery strap. (do you see remorse on his face?)
This isn't road kill - though it doesn't mean that he didn't end up that way later in the day. The woodchuck is at least 2000 feet above timberline. So how much wood does a woodchuck need to chuck -- the eternal question.....
There will be at least a thousand photos taken of summit attendees standing next to the many summit signs. This (Mr/Mrs UPHILL) is but one.
I can't post piks from Ouray yet but just want to say that the hosts/volunteers have put on a heck of an event.
Anyone who has ever hosted an event knows how much goes into it and that trying to keep several hundred people happy is a real challenge. The 2008 Summit is running smoothly and everyone seems to be having a great time.
Trails are wet and dry, some have been rained/sleeted/hailed on while out. Trail Teams and other volunteers (i.e. LandCruiserSteve) are putting on valuable training. The vendor support is wonderful too--thank you guys and gals!
I learned so much out on Corkscrew and California Gulch today--sounds silly but it was the first time I ever needed my A-Trak. Push of a button and the slipping stopped and I was over the obstacle.
Thanks to Mud (leader) and Matt (tailgunner) for a great run today!
Doing something like this has been on my "Bucketlist" for many years. I am so glad that I came to Ouray with an FJ! :clap:
