    Nice NEK.

    The new bridge in the first photo they didn't put any lighting in the budget and the crazy part was they didn't even put in conduit for the future. Of course, that may be because the old vert lift one got stuck in the 'up' position, which put the new one on the fast track.

    The other one that is all lit up is brand new also. It's been traffic hell with these bridges down lately.

    I would have recommended Stratham Hill for a beginner ride over fort rock, but I'm sure it was all good...I hope That place can be tough.

    Had no idea it was free the nipple day. Last yr it was big news...oh the children! ...I guess nobody cared all too much this yr.

    Pretty sure a first line was skied up off Knife's Edge, but that only makes it in the journal at the Rangers Cabin.

    ml needs to join the CAC now.

    Nothing recorded for NE in the Journal. NH provided several reports in Accidents.

    A number of pages, various Provinces. Mostly mainland ice. Great Sail got some rock love, several new.

    All way beyond my highest standard....I am content to limit myself to oddities....Glassing and 'shwacking in to try routes on Larry, Moe and Curly, the bigest three Boott Spur crags. Nice find on Lion's Head too. All rope solo with 4th classing here and there.

    Leaves are a-changin
    Spent last weekend camping at Lake Groton. Saturday was a complete washout. However, the next morning was beautiful. I went down to the water with my daughter and FIL to take photos of them fishing when two loons started racing back and forth across the water in a zig-zag pattern. They covered about a 1/2 mile of lake during the entire race. It looked exhausting as they did dive turn after dive turn. Probably 25-30 turns in all. I've never seen anything like it. I'm guessing it was a territorial dispute. I quickly ran to get my 200mm lens and got this shot video of a portion of the race. They were about 100 yards off shore and into the rising sun, so the video quality isn't the best.

    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Solar Storms have been firing the last few days. Last night, it cleared out here just enough to catch a bit of the show. However, the sky clearing came after the moon had already risen, washing out a lot of the aurora.

    Free bikes all over town. There is bus service to the mountain (from Gunnison too) Should be fine without a rental. Just like the town of CB a lot more and the distance is not insignificant.

    But how would you get to CB (or Gunni for that matter) without spending waaaay more (on air or bus or shuttle from DEN) than most rentals?

    I agree on the stay in CB, but it's a destination location...there really is no easy way to actually get there.

    Note to self...read the original post and link before responding...

    Self imposed JONG label...

    Still, the $300.00 credit seems to fall short for the lift to GUC from DEN

    The last few days have had some solar storms. The first/best occurred while it was cloudy here in the NEK. I got some shots but only after the clouds had cleared out some and the moon had come up. This storm had a blue/green color light.



    Last night there was another storm but is was just a glancing blow and fainter with different colors. I'm still waiting to get some shots from Lake Willoughby during a strong event.

    +1 NEK. I tried going out a few nights/early mornings lately to catch a glimpse but the big city lights of the Champlain Valley or clouds had other ideas. Looking forward to a few planned hikes this weekend to check out the first colors of the season and do a little scouting.

    I know a UVM'er that has that sticker on her car also. Pretty funny.
