Happy New Year!!
Remember when 2016 seemed so faaarrrrrr awwaaayyyy? Me too, and it's here now! Ouch!
We've had a bit of a cold spell, but temps broke free today, climbing well into the 40s. The temperature was a good enough excuse to procrastinate and take the Pearl for a ride up Waterton Canyon. The ride began dry, with a touch of Fahrenheit-cold lingering in the shadows.
Northerly aspects still have a blanket of snow for show.
I turned around at the trailhead for the Colorado Trail.
Turkshead Peak rises from 5,780 feet to about 7,700 feet in elevation.
The shadows stealthily morphed into a heavy, dark and cold ambience.
The South Platte River isn't completely iced over.
You've been mooned!
That's it for now. It's been a rather slow start this new year. Stay tuned...
