Hiking, Mountain Biking

Drat! Ride foiled by weather.

We’re down in Fort Collins, Colo., for a two-year-old’s birthday party today.  I thought I’d squeeze a ride in this morning before the festivities start this afternoon.  The weather had a different idea:

Here’s the current national satellite/radar image. A low pressure trough is pushing through Colorado throughout the day, thwarting my outdoors plans.

This is a fairly cold weather system, and the mountains got snow last night.  Here’s the scene at A-Basin this morning.

The webcam at A-Basin shows fresh snow this morning

And A-Basin’s Continental Divide cousin Loveland Ski Area:

Looking beautiful up there with fresh snow

It’s blue skies up in the mountains right now, but it’s dreary and wet down in Fort Collins.

Yucky and mucky

The trails will be sloppy and muddy.  I don’t feel like being tough and roughing it in cold, wet conditions today.  The best I can do is take the dogs for a short hike and wait to ride another drier and warmer day.
