Nice work on you and Joel getting two teeners in one day with fresh snow. Nice photos and loved hearing about the bacon. Sounds like this is a pattern for you guys-nice meeting you on Uncompahgre.

Good to meet you up there too. It was a nice day out. Bacon is definetely a theme for both of us. We cooked up 7 pounds of bacon for five people in Chicago Basin the week prior! Solid calories there.


Nice!     05/19/2011 02:24
