I tried to post this yesterday and it just wouldn't take. Now that the weather is, indeed, turning, it works!
This is a shot from awhile ago of the peak, with a bit of snow like today, with the wind blowing like today.
I awoke with a start when the wind blew the windows open at my house in Manitou early this morning. And I immediately thought of Dave and Christian and the gang up on mountain. Brrrrrr!
And then I thought of poor sockless Zeb Pike. Yipes! No wonder he turned around. No Popsicle Pike for him.
The gang should be zeroing in on the summit as I write. I'll pass along the news as soon as I hear.
In the meantime, get your gear ready for a - ahem - sick day later this week. I feel a day of riding coming on!
