      I don't get it, this photo is right-side-up when I look at it on my computer. I tried flipping it upside-down and uploading again, and it appeared upside down. So, according to DM, this is the correct way to view this photo. Not sure what this says about us.

      Will do. Come to think of it, gravity isn't working out so well for us right now. Maybe DM is being optimistic.

      Sorry I didn't check earlier! Or that you didn't ask me... Slick rock trail = 13 miles, pick up 7 more by running the bike path toward Arches National Park. ;-)

    ...would have been to rest today. But a snowstorm hit Boulder, so I *had* to get out on the trails. Quick jaunt up to the Mesa trail. 900' vertical, 8" new snow.
