Aspen 2001:

This summer included a bike ride up to independence pass with Dave Morrison (my training partner), and
Dan Kabat. It's about a 4000ft climb over 20 miles from Aspen to the pass (at about 12000ft), and there
really aren't many if any down parts. We had a  gorgeous day for the ride - see for yourself,



Ofer Aharony, Andreas Karch, Albion Lawrence and I hiked into Snowmass village.


Some pictures from the top of the Ute trail. Snow already covers the distant peaks,
