I'm quite sure that they have not. That's hiker damage.


I'm quite sure those are mountain bikes. Nice try Bean.


:lol: This thread makes me happy. As does the fact that Bean went and registered a Bean 2.

No such luck. Just a troll that seems to have a crush on me.

We're gonna need Bean 3 to mediate this. He's never around when you need him.

Nope. Sorry, not a troll. We covered this already.
To be clear, I have a crush on myself just as much as Bean has on himself, and I for him.

I once was yelled at by somebody who was obviously on the trail near Pikes summit. When I was obviously on a social trail damaging the pristine environment. I'm still confused to this day

I've studied the photos for a considerable amount of time and I'm gonna have to go with Jim on this one.

7, 7 It's obvious. Someone has been combining peaks. Probably didn't even keep the 3000' rule. :lol:

EDIT: "...a new trail is forming where there are already seven!"

Please stay on the English.
I am unable to walk away from the mountain without climbing it. An unclimbed mountain tugs at my consciousness with the eternal weight of time itself. Until I've pressed my face into it's alpine winds, hugged it's ancient granite walls, and put it's weathered summit beneath my heal I'm unable to resist it's attraction.Knowing nature gives the mountain more time than she gives us adds urgency to the obsession. As has been said before; the mountain doesn't care.

It can wait forever. I cannot.

This is on the summit of Elbert, getting pumped to drop in for the downhill. As it's been said before, walking downhill = lame.

Although this rad picture should go in this thread.

Rad ripping, bro!

So I drag a spade behind me to mark my trail since the marmots keep eating my jelly beans.
Some rise, some fall, some climb to get to terrapin
