Couple shots from last weekend. We ran Wearymans, near Red Cliff. The tree's had so much snow on them they sagged into the trail. As soon at touched the snow would fall off and the trees would spring up. The snow proved to be too much for my tires. If I could get through the snow to the dirt underneath everything was good, but at about 10,000 ft the snow was turning to ice under my spinning wheels. I was pretty sure at some point I was gonna slide into the river. Had to winch up 2 hills before finding a flat spot to turn arround. I can't believe it's winter already.

Only did 5 miles on I-70. I live in Vail village. Winch is worth it weight in gold.
