Argo We are gonna be riding bikes doing some DH today. Then we are hiking Elbert Saturday. Still plenty of snow in that basin back there. Nice report

killclimbz That is what I thought

It doesn't necessarily have to be a cold winter, I will be happy with a snowy one though.

neni Ops, might be a Britisch term hacking is "outdoor" horseback riding, i.e. not exercising flat work (like dressage or show jumping). Like horseback hiking? Winter is the best time to hack cause all the snow covered fields are "race tracks". So yes... I'm counting the days and hope for another cold winter

killclimbz Probably the same guy RMS. My understanding is he is a regular in the area. People definitely do not need to feed billy goats or wildlife in general. Goats can be very dangerous. As people have found out at Rainier. They have killed people. I'd guess this guy was somewhere over 200 lbs. Plenty big for a goat.

Hacking? Is that short for horseback riding? Sounds like good times neni.

I definitely extended my season this year. The late spring snow made it possible. This was probably my last day. Diminishing returns and all

Time to wear shorts and ride bikes I think. Come Saturday the days will be getting shorter and next season is just four months away...

neni Great shots! You really squeeze the most out of the last patches of white

Love the pics of the dogs! A friend has two dogs (Scandinavian Hound and Ridgeback) who accompanie us while hacking. They love to run infront of the horses and I have beautiful memories of galloping in deep fresh snow with one of them on each side. Fun to see how they try to egg the horses to run faster

West Baden Iron Another great TR killclimbz! I'm glad there are people like you posting these up to help pass the time for a flatlander like me.

RockyMTNsteeze A couple of years ago I hiked Quandary.

This goat walked up within 5 feet away from my friends and I when we stopped to eat lunch. Maybe it's the same one because this goat did not give a shit.

He was like, gimmie your food. I took this picture with a shitty camera and did not have to zoom on the goat at all. They are a little more outgoing than they should be because people feed them, bad people.

killclimbz As long as Cody is able to do it he'll be coming with me. His attitude is infectious.

I am excited that I got so many excellent photos and video of him this year.

Thanks guys.

snowklinger We got to see them goats up close when we climbed Quandary, they almost startled us. They are badass, like your report as usual sir, tyvm.

EatRideSleep Another excellent TR, killz! Spectacular views and the mountain goat certainly looks quite magnificent. Thank you.

You do realize you've set a precedent for mandatory photos of Cody (and based on Jessie's expression, her, too) on all your TRs going forward, right?
