Yes, we are riding in shorts above 8,000 feet in December. Insane. Used to be...even a surf and turf on Thanksgiving was a stretch. Now, it is just another sunny day in paradise. Rallied two full 2.5-3 hour laps. Goos thing the seasons are getting longer..'cuz there is just so much out there to enjoy. We serendipitously ran into Jimmy (of 'Jimmy's Beer' fame) and he just happened to have a numbered anniversary beer from our friends at Very Nice Brewing in Nederland. Being that it was sunset and we had been riding for a very long time, we found a vacant deck with one of the best views in the world (it's like a living topo of my life) and just grooved on the changing light. The dream, is alive and well. If it all works out, we will be sliding powder at The Rock tomorrow. Dog willing.
