Random Mix of Goodness...or crap?

Well, continuing with yesterday's update of sorts, here is some additional goings-on at the Pants household:

  • Had a flat on my townie halfway to work on Monday, but now in turn have some sweet white walls:

  • Shamus and I hiked over the weekend to Angel Pass in Poverty Gulch (which I know to most of you means nothing, but I still have to share.  One of the most spectacular views I have experienced in some time.  Here are some snippets of the ADVENTURE!:

Top of Angel Pass looking down to Marcellina and Middle Anthracite Creek

Me to Shamus "Why did you bring your ice axe?"  Shamus "Because I knew you'd be a pansy when we had to cross the snowfields."  Me to Shamus "I'll give you a pansy."  I WAS a nervous nelly, but seriously not a pansy.

Super bratters

Right up the middle behind Shamus is where Angel Pass sits

At the saddle with Cascade behind me
  • I volunteered answering phones for the pledge drive for our local radio station KBUT last night, which is an AWESOME little station.  You can listen online if you need something during the day.  Someday, I will DJ on there...I will keep you posted.

Song of the day - James McMurtry ~ Choctaw Bingo

How could you not tap your toe to this...

It has been a busy couple of weeks, but such is summer.  Here's a little of what I've been up to:

  • We went to see out friend's bambino in Denver, Kamuel.  He is one of the cutest little fellow's I've ever seen.  My photography skills are not as good as my cage fighting skills, as you can see, but he WAS also very sleepy.

  • My two remaining grandparents passed away in the span of a week and a half.  It was time, but you are never ready for the call to come.  Much love to them both.
  • Funderson and I volunteered to be on top of Mt. CB for the Summit Hike an event for Living Journey's a local organization that raises money for cancer.  My first time up on the lift and thanks be to Funderson for chatting me up because I was NERVOUS!  We had a great time and talked with folks as they summited and then returned down.  Here are some photos:
Funderson and I at the tippy top.  We carried our sack lunches all the way to the top.

The trail coming up to where we were stationed.

The wildflowers were RIDICULOUS.  Skunk cabbage and larkspur as tall as we were...and we are quite tall.

  • Ran to the top of Gunsight Pass, which can be seen in the middle here.  

To the left Scarps Ridge, to the right Red Lady and behind some wicked clouds.

Song of the day - My Morning Jacket ~ Golden

This song is just magically melodic.

A little bluegrassy motown...

Song of the day - Run C&W ~ What'd I Say/Superstition/Stop in the Name of Love

Superstition starts at around 2 minutes, never thought I'd hear a bluegrass version of any of these songs.
