>Backcountry.  Can mean many things.  The land behind your house.  Country thats behind you.  Untouched land.  Or you can do what most Colorado residents do.  Clip on an avalanche beacon.  Fill a pack with food, water and avalanche gear.  Strap on skis or snowshoes and start heading up.  Up mountains that aren’t groomed, aren’t part of a resort and aren’t known to the thousands of tourists that visit the area.

Today, Mayflower Gulch.  An old mining area.  Current magnificent hiking spot.

 Kari and her excited dogs, Ripley in front and Kobe behind.

 Kobe…in his element.  Please notice the icicles on his chin.

Kari’s a natural.  As many times as it took me to fall and get back up, she stood there patiently encouraging every moment!
