My face is peeling and my lips are chapped to the point of bleeding (literally).. but boy am I happy.
Yep, colorado was fun as hell.
Diet damage - it could have been worse. I indulged constantly during the trip, and only have two lbs to show for it. I expect to lose those 2 pronto and be back on track. I'll be extra-aggressive for a while, just to catch up a bit.
This is how we got around the backcountry in aspen:
that was freaking hard to hold on to!! and a helluva workout! but fun, too..
Given the season, late march.. Colorado was brown in the valleys. Snow had recently melted and leaves hadn't had a chance to grow yet. It reminded me a bit of california. Yech!!
Can't wait to go back there in may and see it green, like in this photograph..
