    I thought it would be nice to see Sasquatch so I stopped and knocked on the door but no one was home. Maybe next time?[​IMG][​IMG]

    When we got to the bottom of Tomichi we decided to skip the Alpine Tunnel and just go up to Hancock. At Frenchy's, we heard that it had washed out. My buddy Mike and his daughter hiked down from the back side. This is sad, the "wash out" is at one of the palisades.

    Yeah, you guys hit the most rain we've had in many weeks. Unfortunate for the rally, but we needed that rain so badly, it was hard to complain. I was working all weekend, but I was thinking about you guys.

    As a noob to Westfest, I didn't know what to expect and to sum it up.....I was blown away! While the riding was great, by far the best part was/were the people. Denise and Chad set such a warm welcoming tone that you feel like you are coming into their home and meeting all their friends. Thank you all and hope to ride with you again soon. Randy

    That goes double for me! I had gotten to the camp on monday so I had a head start on the rest of the group and I had an awesome time! Special thanks to notsofastdave for showing me engineer and cinnamon pass. And NJBILL for cement and Italian creek pass.
    Thanks to everyone who helped make this a great event!
    Where do I sign up for next year?

    Thanks to all the organizers and those who were less organized but fun to hang out with. This was my first time in CO and I really enjoyed it.
