    We're here YEAH!!!

    [​IMG]

    Tomorrow, we'll hit Wal-Mart first then pick up what I call "Engineer's Pass" just outside of Ouray down to Animas forks. Will probably do Minnie and Maggie, Cinnamon then the REAL Engineers pass on the way back.

    Next day, same path back to Animas area, pick up California, Corkscrew and I dunno, will have to get out the book.

    Third day will be Yankee Boy Basin, Imogene and maybe Christian Dior's (or whoever the hell it is) ranch. The latter depending on the rain, I hear it can be messy if it's rained.

    Maybe BBP on Thursday or Friday (if it's open, currently closed) or just hang in Ouray and spend the day drinking beer, buying souvenirs and drinking more beer. I may have to refrain from PUI posting that day LOL. But that's WAY down the week.

    I'll keep everyone posted in this thread.

    A disappointing day. We got up and went to Wal-Mart and I started feeling like I was coming down with a Summer Cold. We came back to the room and I took about a two hour nap, much better now. It was too late to hit the trails so we made a beer day out of it. Silver Eagle Saloon for dirty beers, pool and some juke box. Life is good.

    Now sitting outside of the hotel, holding off some rain, enjoying the cool breeze and the mountain vistas. We'll hit the silverton trails tomorrow.

    Sorry for being such a slacker but we've been quite busy running trails and drinking beer LOL. Ok, pics from Tuesday HERE and pics from today, wednesday can be found HERE. Imogene was absolutely fabulous! There is still SO much snow up there. BBP is still closed, it isn't looking like it's going to be open before we leave.

    Anyway, enjoy.

    We're trying to work it LOL! I have some AWESOME video from Imogene Pass, the snow there this year is incredible. There are places where they cut a path though at least 20' snow mounds, drifts?? I don't know what to call them. It's all on the video but I'll have to wait until I get home to edit it down to youtube specs.

    I'll get those up as soon as I can. There were people skiing down the Ouray side of the summit, it was incredible! From my vid, you can also see where two people skied down the north facing wall across from the summit.

    Don't go anywhere, I'm about to post a video link. It's the second vid, after I rendered the first, I figured out how to post directly to YouTube in a fraction of the time. More to come!

    Shit, never mind. It wasn't publishing, it was just rendering. Looks like it will be this weekend before I can get the vids uploaded.

    Ok last day :-( We did lower Engineer to Animas Fork, then took California Gulch, through Hurricane Pass, then on to Corkscrew Gulch. Man, those were absolutely the best trails we've been on. Anyway, the pics are HERE Lots of snow pics included for Rick this time. Oh, I realized that the walls of snow somehow had grown to enormous heights by the time we got to the hotel room from Imogene the other day. They're more like 15' but still breathtaking!
