grievance: those damn headlights on many cars today that could light up a night time stadium game; they're blinding when they come up behind you or from on coming traffic lane, and I think they're dangerous!

The near death of real Rock and Roll music. I'm sick of today's overly-processed garbage. :(

Bill: You are way too young to have developed such a curmudgeonly attitude.

Rock and Roll will only die when we do. I had those front row seats for the Stones first US tour and I am kind of starting to look like Keith Richards, so, it won't be long.
It looks like the ridge is just right up there!

Colorado "Natives" that call themselves "Natives" since I usually think of natives as indigenous people, ie. native americans

I don't know any other state other than CO where native born people make such a big stink about being "native" here :lol:



2 come to mind - Texas and Alaska
I have been to the top of the mountain, and it is good

I do remember a strong correlation between mullets and such bumper stickers though.
The mountains - whose summits reach or exceed arbitrary thresholds for elevation and prominence - are calling and I must go.

Amen to that thought. It's all going south or north. :(


Is it too early to complain? :-D


Fingers crossed on a new year and new start on snowfall! :-D
Mountains cast spells on me - Why, because of the way Earth-heaps lie, should I be Chocked by joy mysteriously; stilled or drunken-gay? Why should a brown hill trail Tug at my feet to go? Why should a boggy swale Tune my heart to a nameless tale Mountain marshes know?

Dog poo that has been put into a plastic bag. And then left on the side of the trail for the "help" to clean up.
