    I suppose I need to do the Ute Cup before I die, or it dies. As you know Richard and I have been going to CO every year now for quite a few years and Jarred was with us last year. Some year I just need to do the Ute instead.

    I should go ride it again too,Shan left my name off (I tied for 40th with someone & it was missed ) in the Trials Comp. magazine posting of the results & my local riding group still don't believe I road it. How is that for a good reason to go back? I'm retiring June 30th not sure it will be this year but look out next year!

    At the base of the weathered post (middle picture), you can just see a ~3" threaded pipe looking thing. In there was bunch of sheets of lined paper with names and home states all the folks who had visited the top of the mountain. Felt like finding scroll from Lord of the Rings. I'm pretty sure we signed it. Wonder if that is still up there?! I remember that clearly, but I can't remember the name of the mountain! Thanks for bringing back great memories Jim!

    Hey! You're right, I remember that now. I think one guy who signed it just a few days before us was like 82 years old or something... there was a pencil in there and it was a plastic PVC tube with screw-off cap and a cable tied it to that post.... Correct?
