Here is a backpacking trip some friends and I took up to Colorado during the summer of 1999. We have done many trips like this over the years.
First, we stopped by the Sand Dunes. Here I am for the first time on a snowboard. Wes brought it along so I could hurt myself on it....
I'm still up, but not for long. I was headed down after hitting a little bump. I just couldn't figure out to turn.
Here is the whole group before we headed to the top of the mountain. Paul in the back. Left->right: Katie, Tam, Jana, Matt, me, and Wes. Lauren in the front.
About to hike up the rocky terrain.
Hmm, that sure is steep, are you SURE this is the right way to go?
Must have been the right way. Can we go back now, it is freezing up here.
But, look at the view. That made it all worth it.
Going down is a lot easier than going up.
I look small next to the small part of the mountain.
Look at those three studs standing in front of the mountain they just climbed. Oh yeah, they feel good.
Now, this picture is a little strange. The reason is is because the tent was completely black before the flash went off. Also, we were all trying to look a little strange. So, the result is this. Other people have thought it looked as though Katie was having a baby. Now, Paul with his head band on looks like a doctor which means that I had to be the father. Don't worry though, nothing happened.
