    I didn't take a lot of photos in 2008 around the front range actually. Hard to carry a camera on the same old stuff.

    But I took a couple notable ones anyway.


    @ Antelope at Hall Ranch. The rider in the rear is a newbie. Glad to introduce someone to the fun.



    @ S St Vrain. Not too long ago. 8500 feet and no snow.

    These are all shot on the east side of the Cont. Divide, so that would count as Front Range....right?

    Times are tough for me this year, and it has been hard to even afford a tank of gas to go some place spectacular.

    None the less, I found the joys of sticking close to home.




    Since my car is an old Honda Civic, it is reasonable to drive it ~ 60 miles up hill, then coast back to town to get to ride the Tundra.

    Holy crap that's gorgeous! Where did you take that 2nd photo? I'm new to CO and while I'm enjoying skiing and showshoeing for now, I really look forward to sampling some of the great mountain biking.

    Some truly great pics for the year. As 2009 has just rolled onto the calendars we should remember the great rides of the past year and look forward to making true the resolutions we all may have made. Ride and enjoy.
    Happy New Year!

    Hmm. OK, I'll do it for you: "Colorado, Maybe Front Range only."

    Perhaps you should not call out others for allegedly not posting by the "rules" when you don't understand them and refuse to learn them yourself.

    Maybe I will be more notable in 2009? What an odd thing to say to someone you don't know. Maybe you will be less smug.

    Well I don't live in Colorado yet and since people don't feel like posting up their yearly photos in the Northwest thread I'll post my pictures here.
