Only because the dog is cool.

Not because you are cool.

Good looking dog

You had me at dog...

In my next life, I want to come back as Taj. Crazy part is, I’d probably get to more summits than I have as a human! Nice report, Dillon!

with snow. Man, that’s too cool. Now, where are my skis???
p.s. Food looks good too. Yum.


I’m jealous!

I did not know it was an option to hike with Taj but without Jason, I’m jealous!

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the write up Dillion!! Good read, as always!


Only one bowl of chili?

Must not have been much of a hike. At least not like the Mummy–Killer.

Nice job though! Good looking partner!


Thanks, buddy!

Taj won’t stop talking about his epic day in the wemi with crazy uncle Dillon. He’s ruined for all the front range junk I bring him on.


Uh huh

taj is a beast

K - Oh snap! Did I not like enough of your pics on Instagaper today? haha jk!! - Lets get out after Turkey, maybe ?!?!

Dave - GG traverse loop, start training buddy, but go easy on those anniversary climbs! I hear they can be pretty dangerous. haha - see you in the Park!

Jay - Thanks! A bit of caution, Taj is pretty smelly. You might also want to pick a less hairy dog to come back as. He does get the ladies though.

Natalie - Doesn’t get much better than Wemipalooza with snow. Rock climbing in Grand Junction or skiing powder in The San Juany’s in October? Who are you and what have you done with Natalie? Oh and that’s the best post-anything chile there is right there.

Shawn - haha. Take care of Taj’s dad on Aconcagua man. He’s dangerous.

John - #bro ####the quadrahash?!?! oh man!

Doug – Thanks! Easy peasy and the Mummy Kill was pretty BA if I do say so myself. That bowl of chile from Pagosa Brewing comes highly recommended. They also have a new White Out IPA.

JB - That Taj, he’s one hell of a talker! Thanks for letting him come out and play buddy. When we pulled over on 285, he made a B line for Little Bear. What is the Front Range?

Amy - good question. I think he might be CIA. He has no thumbs so anything with a keyboard was automatically ruled out at birth. He’s also not the brightest animal, so he might run for President.
