The front range crew was visiting for a few days last week and pretty much hit it perfect. Great couple of days on the snow with tons of fresh pow and bluebird skies. Doesn't get much better than that! In attendance: Ryan Smith, George C, Ray Orr, Shane J, JP, the Beard, Darrel and Jimmy

Marcus found a stump but we had no damage!
Ryan Smith late day on the way back to the lodge
We stopped to have a fire and some hot food in the backcountry. Thanks Ray!
Back home at the lodge
The crew was wanting more so a full moon night ride was had. Until next time...
Tried to go on a ride out to the flattops yesterday and ended up smoking my primary clutch on '12 HCR half way in. Made it back to the lodge solo and was about to call it day (2 sleds down in 2 days is my limit) when I ran into Donna of Grand Mesa Adventures. She was responding to a SAR incident out near Lands End so she asked me to join Mike and take out a new years day snowmobile tour. We had a pretty good time and it was really awesome to see new comers to snowmobiling enjoying their first ride and the beautiful Grand Mesa. Mike and Donna have an awesome setup at GMA, they operate out of the historic Alexander Lake Lodge (run by the Chyc family, good friends of ours). If you are looking for an adventure on the Mesa, you found it!
