What Month Is It?

Posted on
Thursday was the first sunny day in a long time, and thankfully it was decently warm too. I got to ride my dirtbike for the first time and it was beyond fun. It took me a while to get the clutch down the first time... it's been a while since I've used one, and I've never used one on a normal sized motorcycle. I would move maybe a foot and it would stall out, HAHA! It was very frustrating, but after about 20 minutes I finally got it and didn't stall it the rest of the day!

Then yesterday it decided to cloud up and start snowing again... And not just snowing... it was DUMPING. I woke up this morning and was almost confused about what month it was.

Well, it's official- Breckenridge hit 500" for the season!

That is approximately:
12.7 meters
13.9 yards
41.6 feet
1,270 centimeters
12,700 millimeters

Or in other words...


Loveland Pass, CO 

On the note of a lot of snow, I found out that A-Basin's closing day is June 5th, which is my 21st Birthday!!! I am beyond excited that I will be able to ski on my birthday! I'm hoping a good amount of my friends are still in town... that will probably be the best Birthday of my life!

As much as I love the snow I was really looking forward to a nice day today, though. I'm picking up my dirtbike later this evening and I was really looking forward to being able to ride it. I've been waiting for this day for 11+ years and now I have to wait even longer, gah! It's been dumping on and off all day... but that's April in CO for you!

I also just thought I would thrown in a picture of my mom (left) and I from her trip out here. She looks like she could be my sister, huh? Love you, mom!

The last two weeks have been crazy, so much going on!! My mom was out in Colorado this week visiting and learning how to ski. She couldn't have seemed more happy when I picked her up- exclaiming how awesome it was to get away from the political drama in Wisconsin. My poor dad and brother had to stay behind! She's been a water skier her whole life so I wasn't surprised when she was basically parallel skiing by the end of the first day! Her second day she did even better! I'll post some pictures in my next entry when she reads this and sends them to me. I also took a day for some sight-seeing and drove her through Glenwood Canyon. We stopped and took pictures around the base of the Hanging Lake hiking trail with some beautiful little waterfalls and streams. We both would have really loved to hike the trail, but it's a pretty gnarly 2-3 hour trip and we were completely unprepared! I look forward to going back in a month or so with some friends when everything is green and blooming. Me and her both agreed that Glenwood Canyon is probably what heaven looks like.

I googled some pictures of Hanging Lake and the trail leading up to it:

On another note I am SO excited for this summer!! I have wanted a dirtbike my ENTIRE life and I finally got one! Me and my friend bought our friend's dirtbikes. My dream brand too: Yamaha!! It's going to be a fantastic summer of hiking, dirtbiking, and all the other activities in Colorado.

Not a very good picture because they're still in our friend's garage, but his is the front one and mine is the back one!
