I pulled out the GoPro last weekend while mountain biking in Fruita. Here’s a little clip I put together from a ride with Philip, Troy and Wheaton, down the 18 Road luge-course known as the Kessel Run. It’s set to music from the Boulder-based band The Amends. Their first, self-titled album was released earlier this […]
“It’s a classic!” said Tim, which by itself didn’t mean much to me since he describes most, if not all, sections of river he’s run as such. But in this case he wasn’t the only friend to speak of the the 85 mile stretch of the Desolation and Gray Canyons of the Green River as […]
Sunday afternoon we made it to Rogers Pass, ten days after being dropped off in the middle of nowhere, by the Bugaboo Spires. Eight of us made the 85+ mile traverse, climbing some 32,000 vertical feet along the way.
Saturday’s bad weather made for classic storm day conditions up in Highland Bowl. The wind and low visibility kept the fair weather crowds away, and the snow only piled up deeper as the day progressed. Here’s a little video from Christy’s Bowl day. If it isn’t obvious, she’s a proud member of the camp that […]
A group of us headed to Fruita for a few days of mountain biking recently. Here’s a clip I put together from a ride down Zippity Do Da, up at 18 Road. Check out Craig’s broken frame 38 seconds into it. Bummer.
My paragliding pilot pal, Gabor Ferenc, offered to take me for a tandem flight off the east side of Aspen Mountain the other day. Here’s a short video of the fall color tour from the sky. I want to thank Dave Frank, Alex Palmaz from Aspen Paragliding, and of course Gabor, for getting me down […]
The snow is just about gone from Bell Mountain, which as unscientific as it may sound, pretty accurately predicts when the creeks and rivers around Aspen are nearing peak flow. This morning it was verified. We found further support for the Bell Mountain Theory up on Independence Pass where the Roaring Fork was living up […]
I guess it went a little bigger than they anticipated.
Having just passed through a rather porous security check, we stood on the tarmac of Lukla Airport and awaited our flight. It was the first clear morning in three days, and the planes which were reported to have departed Kathmandu, were headed our way. Eager for their arrival, we listened. They were our way home. […]
(Independence Pass, July 4, 2008) Nice job Johnny, you almost made it half way. Watching it twice is even funnier.
