Cody, WY

Annual New Years ice trip.  This year to Cody Wyoming.  Left Madison after work and by 6am a flat in Gillette Wy, after 13 hours of continuous driving.  We lucked out on finding a tire in town and got one for 36 bucks installed and balanced!  wow. 

One of the coolest rock formations in the Big Horn mountains.  A HUGE monocline. 

 Cool topography entering the Powder river basin from the Big Horn's

My name is there;

Ice anyone?

There is always rock

The Ice in Wisconsin sucks...the Snow in Wisconsin sucks...when will the cold and snow come to stay?!?!

This weekend I bailed on the Tuscobia Ultra. I don't have a bike, don't want to run that far and the snow was so thin I didn't want to carry my skis.  But, I have climbed 7 of the last 8 days, set drytool routes at the gym on my rest day and got a workout in this am at Monkey Bar gym. Throw in a few Trail runs as well this past week, and I am spent!

SO, when you can't ice climb, go rock climbing the weekend before Christmas.
