A couple of weeks ago we went on our annual 10th Mountain Division hut trip. This year we went to Margys Hut near Aspen with a group of 13 friends. It was a 6.5 mile ski/snowshoe trek and it took us about 5 hours! We used two snowmobiles to haul some of our gear/food/beverages etc. Still, it was a long, hard trip. The snowmobiles even got stuck several times in the deep snow and were tough to dig out.

Happy 4th of July! This was the first weekend I haven’t had a wedding to photograph since April! I made the most out of it going ski mountaineering climbing Coon Hill at 12,757 feet elevation. We were able to skin up to the summit as well as ski down along a cornice ridge passing a herd of mountain goats on Friday. Sat, we went for a 28 mile bike ride that included Lookout Mountain and Mother Cabrini Shrine. Sunday we watch the Tour de France, the men’s final of the Wimbledon, and fireworks with the Colorado Symphony in Civic Center Park with about 25,000 of our closest friends. Today we broke out our new Big Green Egg, grill/smoker, to cook baby back ribs.
Cheers to a free world, Kent
