Ice climbing in Ouray – continued

  More fun in Ouray. Just in case anyone was getting fatigued by continuously scrolling down I thought I would start a new page. Today David got to climb "The Skylight" which by any stretch of the imagination is one of the very best climbs in the area. It is not...

Ice Climbing in Colorado IL Buono IL Brutto e IL Cattivo

The Journey The flights were, as always, too long but on this occasion the first part of the journey was made infinitely more pleasant by the company of a beautiful woman who, much to my surprise, gave me her phone number. How good is that? And here it is 44999 Having...

Ice Park Ouray

Symblegades

            In ancient Greece the wise would shelter from the sun in the cool of the shade and imagine what delights a short boat trip to a nearby island would await them. Impetuous youth nowadays are far more driven by adrenalin, seeking to ratchet up their desires...
