I got to break trails, post-hole, bushwhack, scury up a snowy bouldered ridge, summit a new mini-mountain, enjoy the views, and relish living in Colorado all on my lunch break today! What fun!
Found a new great trail with my hubby this weekend! I love new trails! There's a fun (and to my surprise, run-able and bike-able) trail that connects Gold Camp to Saint Mary's Falls trails. It goes up and over the ridge coming off the North side of Stove Mountain.
I had the privilege of paddling with Jeremy Rodgers and Ryan Ognibene on the South Platte this weekend.....and learned that the slalom stroke that I have is more difficult to change than I thought it would be. Here is a video of Jeremy demonstrating the perfect Downriver/Flatwater/Long Distance paddling stroke. You definitely want to take notes. This guy's good. Here's another helpful video he made:
First he demonstrates the arm motion, then the torso motion, then he incorporates the legs...
....I have a lot to work on :)
