    So, on the way back from Top of the World, I decided I wanted to climb some stuff. The other two trucks in our group pussed out and left us hanging on the side of a cliff. Quite literally lol. They pulled off shortly after I took this pic lol.
    DSCN2749_zps79f8f7d7_8ea8716cc7efc41926df103cb69e6b5071085527.jpg

    Then I decided I should climb the big spire thing in the background of this pic.
    DSCN2766_zps797a88b2_8c5cf88901a52bc7bf2b87e07b237fd175b0d661.jpg

    So I headed up.
    DSCN2776_zps1e226ec6_65b00bc1d2e9b02806676d4db722cd338764fafc.jpg

    And, after trying a couple different paths, I made it.

    DSCN2778_zps43c81a2c_9cf5cec819adf16b24984e25c13a834da335ee2e.jpg

    I tried to stand up, but the wind was blowing about 60mph, so I just stretched out on top lol.

    Yep, I'll be hunting with my dad, so probably won't get to wheel any. We have family in Pueblo, so that's where we'll be staying, but I'm sure I'll make at least one trip up to Colorado Springs and Castle Rock. I'll give ya a shout.

    And, we're taking an Arkansas group back to Moab next year in April. We rented a house for a week, and got the confirmation yesterday. I'm getting pretty excited about it!:D

    Nope, we kinda want to be low key, so we are going between EJS and Cruise- April 18-25 is when we rented the house for. I may be out there the week before as well doing a little exploring on my own.
