I remember visiting Komito's shop when I lived in Ft. Collins - long time ago now. When was this taken?

If my rotting memory serves me correctly, it was taken in 1989 or '90.
Steve & I go back to the early 60's when we worked for Gerry Cunningham at Gerry Mountain Sports in Boulder.
Steve says, "We've been around since they poured the foundation for Longs Peak."

This is a humbling shot. This picture says considerably more than its' face value. I really like this, Jim. Would you mind if I added this to my collection on my computer?
