Sunday, 01/30/11 Green Mountain

Met up with Bill at the Gregory lot at 4pm. Went up/down Gregory/Ranger at a super casual pace, just chatting and catching up. The ice on the upper section of trail is getting pretty solid and my (dull) screw shoes were marginal on the descent. Bill had some SWEET Sportiva shoes with hobnails that really hook up. Might have to bite the bullet and try the hobnails (although I JUST bought 4 boxes of screws at McGuckins over the weekend).

  1. Uh... I don't suppose you saw a dude in a red shirt taking pictures on top.

  2. Yep, I stood on the summit rock, said something dumb to Bill just as I looked down and noticed you in the red shirt and said hi (I think I said hi, or at least nodded?). We did not spend much time on the summit, as we both were in a hurry to get home, sorry to have not made an introduction.

  3. Just wanted to check in and say I dig your blog. I've been living vicariously through it and a few others for the past few years and finally just got word on my transfer to Boulder. Hope to be a 'ran into Rob coming down green' blurb come May!

  4. Thanks Rob. Congrats on the transfer, you will not be disappointed in all that Bouler/Colorado has to offer for outdoor/running opportunities. Look forward to seeing you on the mountain!

  5. JV - My bad. You'd think I'd recognize Front Range runners from their blogs by now. But, no clue.

    Nice to almost meet you :)

    That late sunlight on the summit was great and I spent about 15-20 minutes up there just enjoying it. Beautiful day.
