Montgomery Pass Snowshoe Trip

We kicked off our first full winter season in Colorado today with an early morning snowshoe trip up to Montgomery Pass off Highway 14. Christian and Becky met us at the house around 6am, and we carpooled up along the Cache la Poudre. We were a little worried along the way that there might not be good snow, but we had good reports from a friend that the snow would be great. Not far from Cameron Pass the snow came on quick, and we found about 3′ of powder at the trail head.

We met up with Charity and Clint at the trail head, along with Deuce and Louie. Our total route was around 4 miles round trip.

It was cold and windy above treeline, but very pleasant in the forest. We had a great time!

Christmas Tree 2010!

Today we made a trek up to Rist Vue Ranch along Rist Canyon Road for our Christmas Tree. A co-worker had recommended this place for cutting our own tree. It was fun to drive around on logging roads and cut our own; almost as much fun as cutting it off our own land (next year!).
