AAIRE1 with colorado mountain school up in RMNP. Crazy cool to be touring when the avy map is blinking red. Learning so much - highly recommend.
this is so awesome!!! I only had a general 1-hour class a few years ago but definitely need to take a real class next year as I venture out a lot more into the backcountry.
I scratched my leg setting up for that shot. The top is kind of rocky and when I knelt down to focus, I scratched it on a low lying rock.
Beautiful photos - it's great to see this fascinating scenery!Nice @scatman , new kilt? Your legs look scratched up, what happened?
Wednesday: Strong winds, so we hiked at lower elevations in East Saguaro NP. Here is Rick next to one of my favorite Saguaro:

Friday: So much water in Sabino canyon it was overflowing a few bridges. It felt great to get the boots off and walk through the cold water in the middle of the hike. Some teenagers were swimming in the pools upstream and the girls were screaming super loud. We understood better after being bare feet, the water was frigid! We saw fantastic reflections everywhere in the canyon too:

Sunday: Rick on the Hugh Norris trail to Wasson Peak, the highest peak in the Tucson Mountain range. The trail is a ridge trail within the West Saguaro NP and it has spectacular views all along:
Early on the trail:

yes, go someday, if you haven’t been yet. Fantastic hiking all over Tucson.Beautiful photos - it's great to see this fascinating scenery!
I ski ad snowshoe almost every day just in a fleece and a vest, even though it is only about 15 F outside. I have such an intense internal furnace, I'm always so warm. As soon as I pause I do add an additional layer, in most cases my down sweater. Definitely enough for all these outings out here.I never fail to be surprised how much you heat up 'shoeing. Looks awesome up there.
