Yankee Hill 11-09-2009
A big thanks to Mr. Rudy and Mr. Yoder for their early start today. Hope there were others taking pictures because I only took one all day. We had 21 rigs on the run today and it was beautiful outside. I got to try out the HotDogger and my burritos were toasty warm and delicious.

Many thanks to everyone who joined us today and for helping out and making it enjoyable for all. :D

Thanks for being a good sport Ricardo and leading the run for everyone. You and your experienced crew had things nicely under control.

I was able to go at the last minute as long as I could return mid afternoon. So Rudy was flexible enough to meet me early so we could leave the cemetery at 8:30.

There was enough snow to have fun even though there was an extremely hard crust on top to to deal with. We were able to have fun playing at the traditional playground spot. Then Steve and I made it up near the base of Yankee Hill at timberline where we encountered a very large deep drift. Steve barely made it up on top of the drift and tip towed across. I couldn't get up it and had to winch from Steve's rig after he finished winching himself out of the next drift. Then we explored the top. It looked like a easy decent into Alice. But it was still early so we went back down at met the main group at the middle parking lot.

1 and 2. Rudy and I stuck at the same time near the top.
3. At the top. Steve rig looks like it smiling at the JadeRunner
4. Play hill that we couldn't quite make it up. Perhaps the others did later?

Great run, great fun, great people and the weather was pretty much perfect. I didn't do too well either in the picture department, but here are a few anyway.







Thanks to Kenny and Lynnette for bringing Alexis to play with Jaeden. And a big thanks to Ricardo, Scott, Stephen and all who pitched in to make this run a success! :thumb:

Someone was telling me about that rock playground today. It looks fun. I can't believe I've never never been there.

Hey Ricardo, you might want to edit the title of this thread (unless there's another run tomorrow).

Also, could one of you guys that are on the Front Range forum post up a link to this thread in their trip report thread?

It was again a pleasure to wheel with you. Great weather, Great People, it was a good run.


To bad you did not get a pic of that last bump in the road. That one hurt. haha. I know alexis had a blast. She can't wait till the next time we go out. I will have to show her the PIC of the two of them tomorrow.

And as for PICs i stink also. i had my full bag and never got a chance to take any. Pretty bad for a photographer.

Again it was nice seeing both old and new faces. till next time.....

p.s. STEVE..... you left me at the bottom again.... haha
