Word on the street is that Rock Mountain National Park is still buried under snow but that's not the only reason we have been spending almost all our time at the boulder fields on Mt. Evans. The other reasons include a shorter drive and some amazing and very inspiring boulder problems.

 

May and June are amazing months in the alpine regions of Colorado. The snow is melting, the boulders are finally climbable, and there is this incredible psyche that seems to encompass the boulders. I think it's something to do with sharing a great time with friends in a majestic place. It's definitely something that I look forward to every year and something that I spend a good amount of time training for each spring.

This year everything seems to have come together at the perfect time and I'm making things happen on rock that I didn't think were possible for me. Boulders that I would normally consider at the top of my range of ability are feeling good. It is a very rewarding feeling. I'm also excited that some friends from back South are coming into town. I'm super psyched to share some of my amazing time here with them. I have another 10 days in Colorado and I would definitely like to finish up 1 or 2 more boulders. I've included some photos so check them out and stay tuned.
