Default 15th Annual Ouray Labor Day Weekend Run

So I totaled up the 5 years (can't really believe it's been that long... but its true) that me and Idelle have been putting this run together and I know the Millers did it for 10 years before that. So we're calling it the 15th Annual!

We left Wednesday to get an early start and camped at Rowdy Lake near Silver Jack Reservoir. Idelle first spotted a Bull Moose on the way into the campsite (couldn't get a decent pic) but that was a great start. There were moose tracks all over the camping area too. Pic of the tracks and the camping area below.

We headed into the 4J later Thursday. Planning to pre-run Black Bear/Imogene and Poughkeepsie tomorrow.

Like no place on earth!

My first Ouray club trip and I'm not packing light.... I'm packing IPA, Saison, Disconnected Red, and Thrashhard Biere De Garde. Will that work for the potluck?

Our thanks to Dave for another great event and for Travis leading on Poughkeepsie Gulch.

Sarah and I joined Andrew and Travis for Poughkeepsie Gulch on Saturday. It was a fun day.

There is a spot that has been giving people trouble. I saw Travis try and end up using a winch point. So I saw a potential other line to the left. Half way up I changed my plan of attack (mistake) and went more to the left (even though Sarah suggested the other way) I slid a bit to left and my drivers side went down putting me at an uncomfortable angle, so I backed off and the angle became worse. I might have been able to back down, but Travis being the perfect Trail leader decided I should hook my winch to the winch point and he put a strap on my slider should I slip more to the left.

First shot is trying the line and then the recovery

BUT THEN, I made it up the regular spot without needing to be winched. So did Sarah. Both 100's made it up and the 80's needed a winch But in fairness to Travis, he could have made it, he was just being conservative with the family in the truck.

3rd shot is Sarah going up

Big props to Travis for leading and also taking the conservative approach in a situation to ensure no damage and safety of everyone involved

Black Bear and Imogene were awesome as usual. It did start raining on Imogene which made a few places slick
