    the imago and aeronaut in colorado

    i took the route to estes park that climb14er outlined here, and i wanted to share a few pictures...

    these first shots were taken from an overlook on route 36 westbound. you can see the imago messenger bag, flatirons and the front range.

          this was such a lovely creek that had iced over. i wanted to walk across and place the imago in some more interesting spots for a shot, but i was afraid that the ice wouldn't hold my weight...

                i decided i was going to climb this mountain. i haven't climbed anything this steep before. the trails i've done are ones that young children can accompany you on.

                this picture doesn't do it justice, but it was pretty steep. going up was not a problem. it was a good work out, and i was sweating. but i felt confident going up.

                coming down was another story. i could feel myself using my core to balance myself as i descended.

                but it was fun!

                    the aeronaut made a wonderful daypack! the aeronaut would hold fruit, energy bars, water, my wind pants, my wind gloves, my heavier jacket, water, a blanket (just in case i got stuck somewhere), and snowshoes. i ended up not needing all that extra clothing - but as this was my first time, i wasn't sure what to expect.

                      another shot of the aeronaut from above. that's my white jeep grand cherokee rental down below (which, i found out the hard way, isn't a 4 wheel drive). why would a rental car company in denver rent an suv that isn't a 4 wheel drive?
