It was a fun climb and you guys looked in great shape with those gloves. I think you are ready for the Rockies ... umm Indians!
We are Buckeyes from Cleveland!
Go Tribe (in 2009) and Go Ohio!
PS The Browns are going to crush your Broncos this year:)
Hmmm, must be the altitude ....
Excellent TR for Uncompahgre - catches the gist of what I'm sure we are feeling on that trip. Perfect day, conditions, and a game of catch - doesn't get much better!
PS - Go Broncos - Crush the Browns! ;-)
Mark your calendar: Thursday, Nov. 6 in Cleveland. The Broncos are going to be like a bunch of poodles in the DAWG POUND!!!
I look forward to when my kids are old enough for us to really appreciate the mountains together. I'm more of a football fan, though, so maybe we'll haul a pigskin along. And you did pick a good 14er summit for that; Longs is nice and big, too, but Wetterhorn might not work so well.
I wonder if the guy planning to hit golf balls is the same one who wrote in the Wheeler Peak, NM, summit register about doing so back in 2004. Honestly, I have to say that really ticks me off, leaving his trash behind on the mountain, not to mention the very small chance that he might hit someone on one of the other approach routes. Maybe he's one of those ATV guys parked on the tundra along the Alpine Loop and smoking his cigarettes.
Oh well-- end of rant.
Again, nice story, and thanks for sharing.
Don't worry about the rant. It is justified. I thought about marmots choking on golf balls down in the basin after the fact. There were two morons on a ATV above Matterhorn Creek who just ignored the "No Motorized Vehicles" sign. The cool thing was that they got chewed out by a woman who was 6 months pregnant and just climbed Wetterhorn. Never mess with a pregnant woman.
Bob, Climb On!
