The Goal: hike to find some quality snow on July 1.
The Route: (1) hike up 1800 feet on Peak 10 of Breckenridge Ski Resort; (2) hop, play, skip, dig, roll in the wonderful snow; (3) run back down 1800 feet (leave the snow [sob] and catch on fire ;-)
|Elevation about 11,500 on Breck Peak 10.|
Roaring stream next to the snow - gives you an indication of how cold
the water is (it was just snow a few moments ago!)
Max says, "SNOW! Must cross the water to get to the SNOW!"
|Zorro says, "OMG! SNOW! Oh, but look at that wide water crossing!|
How will I get to the snow?"
|Simple... Just back up, take a running start and long jump the water to|
get into the snow! "Hey Bro - we made it! What shall we do first?"
|Bury our heads in the snow, of course. Was there any question what|
we would do first???
|"Who needs water? Tasty snowcone!" says Zorro.|
|"Hey, what's under this snow? Must dig to find out!" declares Max.|
|"Hey bro, what did you find down there? Let me look (and dig)!" proclaims Zorro.|
|"Best July 1st I've ever had," states Zorro, "do we *really* have to|
go back down? Can't we live right here?!?!!"
