The hump of the ski season upon us and spring is coming. Punxsutawny Phil thinks otherwise, after seeing his shadow he declared there to be six more weeks of winter– but apparently Staten Island Chuck (who? read here) says Phil’s got it all wrong. After Christy and I opted to stay in bed this morning, […]
Put mildly, the Maze is out there. So remote and inaccessible is this corner of Canyonlands National Park that it takes nearly 8 hours to drive to some of its namesake camps from the closest gas stations in Green River– leaving you with barely enough fuel to return. As a testament to it’s remoteness and […]
Five of us hit the river last weekend. Even though the Gunny Gorge is in close proximity to Aspen and that when put together, our group has logged some considerable miles on the waters of Colorado, Utah and beyond, only one in the group, Tim, had completed this run before. So armed with five inflatable […]
Dirk, Christy and I agreed- if we didn’t see a sleeping bag for a few weeks, we’d be just fine. I say that because when you consider the different camps on the mountain, and their varying levels of comfort (or lack thereof), well, it’s just great to be home. Having a toilet is nice, too. Let’s review. […]
“I’d like to see the guy who can ride up that!” said the rude guy from California as he arrived to the top of Murphy’s Hogback, walking his bike. When it was revealed that not only did most of our group ride the steep hill but Jared managed to do it with his daughter, Maia, in tow, […]
We’re getting married!!! Christy and I got engaged on Sunday. No maps, slideshows or GPS coordinates are needed for this post. Plan A – a summit proposal atop Coxcomb was stymied by bad weather so Plan B had us on a quick hike to a pass above camp and with just enough of a break in the […]
His Holiness the Dalai Lama was in Aspen this past weekend. Be it politicians, actors, comedians, artists, athletes or heads of state, Aspen has always attracted more than its share of important and influential people, not to mention the droves who think they are in the aforementioned category but don’t even come close (I dealt with some of the latter at the […]
It’s July 16th, a.k.a. the most important day of the year, and if you haven’t seen Christy and her long red dress and wished her a happy birthday yet, you can still acknowledge the significance of the day at the Aspen Club tennis courts until 8, then at the Sky until about 10 and finally […]
Memorial Day Weekend – The Official Summer Kickoff Someone needs to let Snowmass Lake know it’s Memorial Day weekend and not midwinter. It’s still totally frozen up there. Christy, Josh Hirshberg and I headed that way last Saturday for a few days. Getting up the 8 mile trail is adventure enough for most. We had […]
Route: South Face Team: Christy, Ted After coming off our big push in the Sawatch the weekend prior, we wanted to check out the Sangres. There was enough snow down there still to ski, but it was going fast. We made the drive to towards Alamosa and then up the horrendous Como Lake Road to […]
