The Hoars August 1, 2009 – August 6, 2009:
Follow The Hoar’s as they ride our Telluride to Moab Route
08/01/2009: I don’t think the rest of the huts can beat the views from this one! Five years older & now with a little one at home with grandma we are once again on a San Juan Hut tour. Celebrating our 10 year anniversary. Last time was Durango to Moab, a worthy, challenging route. Day 1 much longer than this one. However this one has showers and a resort and a hut right on the Dolores. We can’t wait. May choose pampering for our 15 year anniversary.
08/02/2009: Another blessed day in the mountains! I spooked a gorgeous red fox on the initial descent, Tyler spooked two bucks, one juvenile. Had some minor mechanical adjustments today but nothing show stopping. Squirted all rain. We are psyched to be following a family of four by a couple days. Leaving the huts clean and plenty of eggs, bacon, and cheese. Five years ago a group of six hungry young guys cleaned us out of all the beer and freshies. Verizon keeping us tied in with out little one at home. Good mileage the next 3 days to really put the vitamin “I” to work.
Ranchers and rich folk chose to be considerate today.
From SJHS…more of The Hoar’s story to come and other journal entries to be shared as well.
