Mother’s Day Massacre and the Day After – 5/11-12/2014 – Mayuary Powder

Well I’m trying to get the remaining routes done for my next book and have been having a heck of a time with the weather. I was able to get a few done over the last few days around the Montezuma area but any idea of getting up high for big lines has been washed […]

Coin Slot and WalMart Chute 3/7/2014 Powderlicious

No worries though as Gary’s friends from Golden were also in the same predicament. We finally met up at the Frisco Main trailhead and geared up for […]

Butler Gulch 1/9/2014 – A Nice Save After a Plan Failure
