Hey, that's a nice shiner you've got there, Alan. Should've seen the other guy though! :wink:

Get well soon!

Wow, I was seriously considering doing Twin Sisters or Meadow/St. Vrain that same day, but ultimately decided not to because of the windy forecast. Glad I wasn't there! Anyway, get better!

Hey Alan,
Just saw this, wow. Sobering reminder how fate can be fickle, even on a routine outing. Very glad it worked out OK, hoping for a speedy recovery.

Alan, Wow, that was a horrific experience. Now you have a new mountain to climb. I'm sure you'll put the same determination into recovering as preparing for a mountain. Best wishes for a full recovery.

Get well soon Alan! I can't imagine being thrown like that from those winds! Friday was a windy one for sure, I am glad you are safe and recovering. Best of luck.
