Autumn Color

It's started.

Dan, Michael and I rode somewhere near Fairplay, Colorado on Sunday. It was amazing since we were the only people on the trail.

The color and scenery were fantastic.

Crossing hills,

Crossing valleys,

Crossing beaver dams,

Crossing creeks,

Crossing meadows,

And finally, crossing over my handle bars and breaking my shifter with my knee..Ouch!

Grays Peak

On friday, September 12, four of us hiked up Grays Peak, Colorado. A 14'er 14,270 feet high. Our intent was to do the neighboring 14'er, Torreys peak, but there was unexpected snow. We decided to just stay with the one peak. It was an amazing climb in all the snow.

Nerd Rap on Youtube

The buzz on youtube is this large Hadron science Rap video. What amazed me is the accuracy and detail of the physics. Click and learn about some particle physics and the reasons behind the research.
