Clare at Barr Camp

On the last day of 2010, Dennis & I joined other members of the CMC on a weekend adventure at Barr Camp. It started out with a hike from Manitou Springs up the Barr Trail. We met the Jaggers at their place around 8:45am and were ready at the trailhead at 11am. (more…)

Lauren With Cookie Belle and Nibbles Clare & Nibbles

Lauren & I went cross country skiing in Cordillera, CO. It’s a gated community with a very nice community trail system. We skiied for 1.5 hours and Lauren’s doggies, Cookie Belle and Nibbles chased after us. They had a blast, and were oh-so-cute in their little red jackets. (more…)

Cross Country Ski – Frisco Nordic Center

Saturday, December 18th, 2010

On Saturday, Kelly, Mike, and I ventured up into the mountains to take advantage of the fresh powder. We left the Wooly Mammoth Park N Ride at 6:45am, a little on the late side (my bad!). There was an accident, so we didn’t make it to Frisco until nearly 8:30am.

We stopped at the Butterhorn Bakery for a most excellent breakfast. Yum! Kelly was excited as it would be her first day of nordic skiing.

Later, at the Frisco Nordic Center, we geared up for a wonderful day of cross country. Kelly did fabulous and Mike did a great job of coaching technique. We went ~7 miles before we all decided to call it a day! For more pictures: (more…)
