    Thats what it was like on Tom Dick Harry. Very scary how easily that unbonded stuff slid.

    Now we are in CO...

    A quick update since I last stopped in here.

    We bailed on Teton Pass, as I said, and the weather looked like it was going to hit the Wasatch. We drove to Snowbird, and stayed slopeside for a little luxury. 14" o/n, and we managed to hit the rope drop on the "Road to Provo." Nice little resort.

    That night we decided to get back in the camping grove, and ended up on Antelope Island, N of SLC. That was super cool place to stay, and we stayed two nights and shecked out the bison and antelopes.

    Yesterday we went for a quick walk up SnowBasin (dog friendly, as we have hooked up with friends w/dog), and got a few good schmoo turns down before driving to Moab for dinner at McStiffs. Today, a quick hike in Fisher Towers, and then to Avon CO. Tommorow, Leadville, and points beyond...

    Here's a teaser from the Hellroaring chute at Moonlight...
