I’m inspired by Jill to do a 2012 in photos post- here’s a recap of my year.
January – a snowy run up to Bergen Peak. Calling it a run is a bit of a stretch, since we were postholing at the top.
February – the front range got dumped on a few times last winter (while the mountains got next to no snow). Chester swims through the powder at White Ranch.
March – the snow finally melted off. We took advantage of it by going for a warm and sunny run through the Flatirons.
April – Desert RATS trail race in Fruita. We ran along the Kokopelli trail with amazing views.
May – birthday run up Evergreen Mountain with Chester. Perfect.
June – North Fork 50K. Part of the run went through this burn zone.
July – Eccles Pass, Chester’s last run. One last swim in an alpine lake.
August – Aspen Backcountry Marathon. Single track through the trees.
September – Pawnee Pass area in Indian Peaks- my kind of fall colors.
October – This is the only photo I took all month. It was taken from my office window, as I looked out to enjoy the color of the leaves. I spent most of October indoors working on an NSF proposal.
November – Thanksgiving in Moab. There were so many good photos from this trip, but this one sums it up- after trail running, mountain biking, and hiking, Boris is finally tired, and takes a nap by a cairn on our way to an unnamed arch (which we called Bonus Arch).
December – Our new puppy, Dessa, charges through the snow on Christmas.
