I am loving your CO trip and great map for the theme! Now I need a pic of you skiing down one of these hills!
The names for the trails are hysterical! I'm with Tammy. Let's see you swishing down the side of the mountain!
Neat map! I'm really enjoying the photos from your trip...and now I'm going to enjoy the video too!
Very interesting map. It looks like you really need to know where you are going or there could be some big problems!!
Who names those trails? Jackwhacker? Care to ride the ski-bike down that one? Fun shot, Val!
Hi, everyone. Many of those trail names come from the rich (no pun intended) mining history of the era. One of the goofiest names (IMHO) is Gassy Thompson. Legend has it that he was a contractor who bilked the miners out of big $$. He was called in to dig a new tunnel into a mine. He did so, but only dug through the deep snow and a bit of the way into the actual mountainside. He collected his pay and disappeared before the folks who hired him could discover his deceit.
I'm loving this too. I love maps and oddball names even more. Too bad skiing requires snow. This is a fun series and it looks like you had a fine spring break.
Your map looks 3 dimensional! good one for the theme....
This is the prettiest map I've seen so far! Love the names too!
Great photo for the theme - the contours on the trail map almost look three-dimensional.
What do you think?
