Happy 2nd #gotchaday to this cow dog. 4 years old and maybe a little bit less concerned about the world, but definitely still has Concerns. Today’s hike in the snow was fun. #hikevibes #happygotchaday #4yearsoldandstillcrazy

Five years ago... the last time I rode these trails back in MO at the infamous “bootleg” edition. I went back one more time for the OT100 which is just a hop away from here.

It’s been a tough few years. I can’t speak to what anyone else has traversed, but I have hope we can still move forward to a better year. I can’t say have hope without regret at it all. I’m grateful for my friends, family,and this little spaz. This all feels big, but may it be small

Woke up before the sun, dragged up to the mountains and started hiking without realizing we’d left behind this awesome inversion! Sunny, warm, and windy up at 12k, but cool and cloudy down at 8k!

Finn posing in front of a very low Crater Lake. Finn usually resists picture time (“there’s hiking to do, human!”) but this time was ready. People nearby even laughed that he was poising. #colorado #hikevibes #hikingwithdogs

Friday morning we joined the crowds at Maroon Bells for a hike to Crater lake and then part way up buck skin/willow pass. Plenty of backpackers out on the four pass loop. Someday I’ll have to sneak a weekday version in.

After four hours “forced” into the tent* by Colorado afternoon storms... I noticed the light go a bit red and found a decent night out. A bit weird of a camp experience but still stoked. This was a barometer for another trip and Finn passed, but I don’t think I passed. Started getting a plan B which is still gonna be awesome. * uh, when I was racing those storms, I overlooked the climb, didn’t get water for four miles. So, some ibuprofen and several naps were needed. #backpacking #colorado

Two days on the trail with Finn started early. GPS ate day 1 apparently but we had 12.5 miles and 5.2 the next day. More to come. First thing as I was getting ready at the trailhead, some hikers asked which way to Mt Bierstadt. From the trailhead we were at they’d have to hike 10 miles to get to Mt Evan’s summit lake, then almost climb to Mt Evans itself and then hike across the to get to Bierstadt. Mostly just told them how to drive to the trail they wanted or that they should just do Evans from summit lake. There was also a mother and son (7) at the trailhead looking to climb Evans. Not sure which way they went or if they made it but it be a really long hike for them I think.

The cow dog, keeping them cows at bay. Not sure that Finn’s reaction was any different for a cow vs a deer, but it was still fun to see him try to figure it all out. #cowdogsfirstcow

Talking with my neighbor and both of her cats were toying with Finn. He wanted to chase them (tried twice) but actually sat/laid down and keep his cow dog eyes locked on them at all times. 🤪 #poorfinnegan

Can you spy our green tent? Finn’s favorite part of the night was finding some chipmunks were hiding under a fallen tree near camp. His least favorite was that I didn’t let him keep trying to catch them. He actually did pretty well considering I forgot a tie-out, he came into the tent on his own several times, and generally was responsive while off leash. #campvibes #backpacking #s12o

Went for a sub-12-style backpack with Finn. As we setup camp I spotted this small lightning fire (and called it in). Met with fire crew a little later to help them spot it. Made for some entertainment I suppose. Fire shouldn’t amount to much as it’s in a burn area already. #colorado #backpacking #hikevibes #allthefires
