Since Internet readers have notoriously short attention spans I find it’s usually best to keep a post to a few hundred words and maybe ten photos. So when I came home with 1300 photos from our recent Weminuche Traverse through the San Juan Mountains, I thought the single brief post I put up on the Centennial Skiers site didn’t really do the five day trip justice. I wanted to share some photos that were left on the cutting room floor.

About Christy & Ted
We met in Aspen in 2000 and have been happily stuck in the rockies ever since, getting out in the mountains every day we can, in every season and by all means possible. Read More
Beautiful and inspiring photos. Nice work!
You’re right that attention span is usually short on the Internet. But your blog always keeps my attention … the content is always jaw-dropping. See above. So if you have the inclination and time, write more than a few hundred words. I will always read it.
Really great pics, Ted. What a great 5 days you guys must have had. And, yes, no matter how long your posts are, they are always interesting and I will read every word.
Awesome photos Ted! So much fun to look back on.
Epic stuff kids. Thanks for the share and I echo the above stated sentiments regarding length, keep it coming, it’s super inspirational! Hope all is well and look forward to crossing paths.
well done, as always… way to keep the inspiration high! hope to join y’all for one more before you finish em off!
Maybe I just like to keep it short and I’m blaming it on others. Thanks everyone for the kind comments, if anyone hasn’t been to that area yet, you should bump it up to the top of your list!
Very cool traverse. I’d be interested to know the distance covered and elevation gain/loss.
Also wondering what your packs weighed.
You are so right about skiing in May…..
Holy smokes! Can’t wait to hear all about it! Nice work, kids!
I’m all for an entertaining story with pics likes those. I saw you guys on the trail in Chicago Basin. I was the solo skier in the North Face tent. I spoke to one member of your group…I think it was Sean.
Hope you had fun up there Mike. Snow was a little thin for our liking (at least for summit descents) but even so it’s still an awesome place to be.
Love it! I’d read more for sure. A very impressive push. I spent a week in Vestal basin in early April 2011- these photos really take me back. A traverse, or at least getting into the Tenmile, No Name, and/or Ruby drainages have been high on my list ever since.
