    A Humid Day at Altitude

    Sunday Canyonrat joined me and we attempted to track HomegrownMN, Slow and Luis who had gone bikepacking for the weekend in a rainy, humid alpine environment.

    Moose! Funny enough, I have an Aunt Moose. Though she is maybe 5'1" and 110 lbs tops.

    P1100708

    Is that a funnel cloud forming behind you Canyonrat?

    P1100720

    If so, Wheelies are a Must!

    P1100725

    A rare site. On the CT on the Breckenridge side with Mt. Guyot hidden by thick pillows of cotton in the sky

    P1100728

    Onward, downward, all hail to the Great Flume!

    P1100737

    A high alpine swamp to wade. We're already wet, why not!

    P1100747

    Canyonrat at the Great Flume Wall

    P1100757

    P1100759

    Miners had to eat

    P1100762

    American Gulch

    P1100763

    Little French was exploding

    P1100764

    Rainbows danced on the ground

    P1100765

    The clouds swirled and thrashed in the sky

    P1100784

    Its not mountainbiking without a little hike a biking

    P1100785

    and a little more

    P1100786

    Peppy lepou says it best according to Canyonrat, "Zee Pass, Its French no?"

    P1100787

    Once we reached, "Zee Pas" at 12,000 + ft the rain picked up and my thermometer started plummeting dropping from 52 degrees to 46 degrees in the matter of a minute or two. Then the winds started and we dropped as fast as we could.

    P1100790

    Down to Michigan Creek. We never found Homegrown's crew but they left me a note on my rear window. "French was Bueno". Hell yea it was!

    Humid indeed! Especially after it rained pretty much all night, ha. I put on dry socks and gloves at French Pass then proceeded to slide butt first down an icy slope. FAIL, instantly soaked.

    edit: your tracking skillz are slipping

    Sorry I missed this one!
    The correct number of bikes one should own is N+1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned.
