Had a fenomenal time today.
We all met up at the trailhead and aired down, and then headed up the trail.
It was relatively uneventful. A couple bumps and scrapes was all the damage we incurred. Which was good.
I have to say that this was definitely the coolest run I've been on in a very long time. Beautiful ascent, and adrenaline pumping descent. Can't wait to run it again.
We pulled off on a small spur on the far side and had lunch, and talked about wheeling and the like for awhile. Then we rolled out through Montazuma and onto Loveland Pass.
I-70 was a parking lot at George Town. So I decided to jump off and run up Guanella Pass road instead. I wanted to go check out Naylor lake which I had seen on the GPS weeks earlier. Turns out it's on private property.
But, I ran into JadeRunner up there. So that was cool to get to say hey.
Special thanks to MountainGoat for leading out on Red Cone today.
And thanks to RedFox for letting me air up off his rig. (His "RedFox" 40 is about the coolest rig I've ever had the pleasure of running with. That thing has more gizzmos and gadgets than a James Bond Car)
