Take the long cut, we’ll get there eventually.

Weekend Recap

July 14th, 2008 Posted in Rides, trips

We headed to Nederland for a quickie camping trip, just last night. This morning, we packed up and headed to a trailhead juat outside of the wilderness boundary. There’s far away parking, and there’s close in parking – the close in parking requires driving through puddles and a creekbed for a couple hundred yards – and it gets deep enough that the tailpipe on the jeep was burbling underwater. As soon as I’m committed in the first water fjord, I look to my left and see this lady:


Nice Moose, eh? First time I’ve seen one in this neck of the woods.

A bit over an hour in, we arrived at Lost Lake. Purty nice spot. The wife wants to backpack in here for a night.


Yesterday, I managed a bit of a bike ride from our campsite. A ran accross a couple groves of these – maybe 50 flowers in each. Stunning. No wonder its the Colorado state flower.


And yes, I did manage to ride some singletrack out there.
