I got a last-minute invitation to ride the recent Colorado Climbing Camp By Haute Route Ambassadors. After hesitating a few minutes I decided I better take advantage of the opportunity and ride as many stages possible (around my work schedule).
Big weekends -- our mini vacations sneaking off to some nearby local to mountain bike, road ride, run, or hike -- are what motivate many of us to get through the work week. By Monday morning we're often considering our next adventure. Lately I had gotten a little too busy with work and had difficulty coordinating with friends. I felt that summer was slipping away, so this past weekend I was on a mission do something memorable even if it meant a solo adventure.
