Tarring it up on il Spigolo Giallo!

Kinderspielplatz, with a view...

"Uehli, I got you!"

Pretty sure there was a troll in there...

Sometimes the locals can be a little pushy...

But when all else fails the Illuminati are there for us...

And you thought we have a bolting problem?

Gotta love ski areas in the summer. Very green and relatively quiet.

Used to have an old BMW 2002, and it suffered decrepitude of many of the peripherals. It was challenged in mountain driving situations, but we pressed on!

Example: as the heater core began to die, the window defroster was completely inadequate. Drove through some ice rain in Left Hand Canyon, in the mountains above Boulder, with the windshield turning into an ice rink. Hard times. After that, I screwed an old chalk bag into the console and put a small propane torch in it. On the tip of the torch, I put a flame spreader, and focused it on the interior of the windshield. Problem solved!

Then the window washer spritzer motor died. Spent one evening on the Peak to Peak highway, coming back from Beaver Creek, trekking through 6 inches of deep powder. (Always ran good winter tires, so forward motion wasn't the issue). Had a spray bottle in a gloved hand at the ready, and periodically spritzed the window with that workaround to get us home. No way we wanted to stop and pull off the road in snow that deep!

A little hardened infrastructure never hurt anybody!

One of my all-time favorite places to hang out, tip a cocktail, and breathe in the view.

Panorama Point, Golden Gate Canyon State Park, Colorado.
One of the most underutilized gems of the state:
