btggraphix,

Thanks for your pictures. Looks like a good time was had by all. Take care of that leg and don't be causing any more injury to it beore it can heal up totally, remember motorcycle season is just around the corner so you need to be healed up for it also.

My wife, when she was younger use to ski A-Basin all of the time this has been many years ago but we won't talk about how many years [emoticon] She is a Golden, CO native. After we got married we lived in Arvada, Coal Creek Canyon and then in Golden. Our last place was at 5205 Easley Rd. I lived in the area for over 27 years.


Thanks again for the pictures, we enjoyed them.

HOLY COW what are you doing burning the whole forest in that one camp fire? [emoticon] That fire must be used for about 50 people or so. How do you even get close enough to feed more wood on it?

I used to live on the frontage road between Bakerville/Graymont and Silver Plume (1972/73). I loved seeing your photographs. A truly beautiful area.

So not quite as giant as yours....but here it is:

I don't know when we'll get up that way at this point. It's really really hard for us to manage a two week trip, and I think I'd need that to get all the way up there. It might have ot wait until I can manage to 'work' from the camper.

No wonder she's so tough a girl! I got my first taste of frostbite up there one year, and I remember the biggest black&blue mark I ever had on my body from sliding across a stump on Pali one time. Glad you enjoyed the pictures (both of you) and will keep planning for motorcycle season in mind. With the lack of snow we've had down low this year, I could prolly go to Rampart Range right now. Also, I remember now about you guys being from here. We live in Coal Creek Canyon....

Thanks for the post and pictures. We are headed to Taos, NM this weekend for 4 days of skiing (no camping-just skiing). These pictures really are getting me in the mood! Dave.


NIce! I have been there once, a long long time ago. Was sort of sorry I had a few too many beers one night when the locals I'd nabbed a floor spot to sleep in invited me for a a full moon night hike to the top (or somewhere near the top) of Kachina Peak for some back country skiing. Actually I was more worried about being able to hike the darn thing than ski it and not hold them up. The beers were an excuse for being an out-of-shape ski bum.....

I don't ski so that get together looks like absolutely no fun at all-way to cold for me to be camping [emoticon]. But I'm really glad someone else likes to because I sure do enjoy looking at your pics and reading the trip reports. Call me a wimp or whatever, I don't care. At least I'm going to be a warm wimp.

I-70 was a different highway then (pre-tunnel), I was below the highway so most of the noise went overhead, but "Popeye" the one-eyed snow plow driver kept trying to take my TV antenna out from above. He'd call from Buckley's store in Silver Plume to ask if he got it. We had to buy him a bottle(s) to not build a snow-wall at the driveway. I lived there to ski, but broke my ankle in November and spent the winter on crutches. 3 feet of snow of the ground when I left for the NW.

With enough RUM you don't feel a thing. Not the cold or the heat. It was just a buddy and I . The way I look at it you don't need as much propane to keep the camper warm as the outdoor temp rises 5-10 degrees with a a good ol fire. [emoticon]
