Bear Peak Saddle

Currently, hanging out in Breckenridge, enjoying a quiet Christmas, getting my leftover mimosa on – getting up early tomorrow to hike a few mountains. Perhaps something like this:

Sniktau -> Cupid -> Grizzly (with a very small chance of Torreys, but time is a factor).

Bear Mountain via Nebal Horn via… Places

“So where did you come up from?”, the lone

other

person on Bear Peak inquired.

I thought for a minute, but I had no real good answer. “Hmm. Over… uh, there”. I pointed basically North of us, which points to a rocky outcrop called Nebal Horn.

So where the Hell have you’ve been, dude?

It’s been about 5? months since the 2011 running of the Tour Divide and I’ve been quite quiet here this site. Kind of want to apologize, as my intention wasn’t to show you how I trained, do the race and then: disappear.  5 months is a long time to recap, so I will barely try but a few major points:

I didn’t want to cover any of the tarmac I’d be doing on that ride, so I thought I’d just spin around in circles a little bit, up and down a little local aberration on the topo map called Lookout Mountain.
